Storyline

As a favor to his longtime lover Dr. Susan Silverman, Spenser agrees to investigate the stalking of a theater company director, pro bono. But before he can get started, an actor is killed by an arrow in the middle of a play. Now that there's a real-life murder to investigate, Spenser and Hawk, get to do what they do best--even if it means death threats from the Chinese underworld, being ordered out of town by the tough local police chief, and dodging bullets and crossbows at every turn. By the time they leave the quaint ocean front community, the population has decreased by three, and live theater will never be the same. Written by A&E

Quotes

Spenser: So the killing might be connected to the play, so I need someone to... tell me what the play was about.
Lou Montana: Ahem. Lou Montana. I directed. And, uh, your question is absurd.
Spenser: No; an actor getting shot on stage wearing tights while singing "Land of Love" is absurd.
Lou Montana: Ah. And what was your response to the play?
Spenser: I found it a pretentious mishmash about appearance and reality.
Lou Montana: Well, art isn't "about"

Walking in GREAT Suspence! Great Crime Thriller!
26 August 2001 | by (Frankfort, Illinois) – See all my reviews

All I can say is this movie is very good. It's the 3rd instalment of the Spencer movies, and it is the best. Eric Robert is the reason I saw this and he is a great actor in this great film on A&E. Joe Montena is AWESOME as Spencer and the rest of the cast is so good. I'm glad they made these specil movies foe A&E. It's a trhiller about a who done it and you will be a little surprised at the ending. I was really into the story and the suspence and just plain old great acting by the whole cast. A must see for anybody who loves crime stories. Our of 4 stars I give it 3 1/2 stars. Watch and just enjoy!
