Storyline

Ex-detective Joanne Kilbourn now works as a university lecturer and a "law and order" commentator for the local news. She is reminded of the reason why she left the force when the six-year-old case file on her husband's murder is reopened and a suspect, Kevin Tarpley, is arrested. Kevin denies being the killer but does seem to have insider information about Ian's death; unfortunately, Kevin is gunned down in the street soon after his arrest. When Joanne is confronted by Kevin's mysterious wife, Maureen Gault, at a party in front of all of Ian's old politician friends, she begins investigating. Soon, she finds herself the chief suspect in a murder, and she also discovers that Ian's old friends aren't exactly friends to her. This film is the fourth in a series featuring Joanne Kilbourn; it resolves the murder of her husband and her longstanding flirtatious relationship with her ex-partner, Millard. Written by Sidekick

Fourth film in the Joanne Kilborn series
1 August 2003 | by (Chesterfield, VA) – See all my reviews

We have come to expect an enjoyable ride in this series,and this film is no exception. The path the movie leads us down takes many twists and turns before arriving at the long awaited answer to the question of who killed Joanne Kilborn's husband, Ian. Again, the audience embraces the character of Joanne because of the incredible acting skills of Wendy Crewson, who conveys all the mixed emotions of a widow who is desperate for answers, but afraid of what she will find in her search. Ms. Crewson just keeps getting better and better, as she continues to "flesh out" this fictional character, making us all believe she could exist as the "neighbor next door".
