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

This Film Caused Confusion
8 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Decided to view this 2001 film on Lifetime and hoped to view a film that would hold my interest as it was suppose to be a murder mystery. Wendy Crewson,(Joanne Kilbourn),"Perfect Pie",'2002, lost her husband and the story went in all kinds of different directions involving all kinds of characters and everyone was investigated by Victor Garber(Insp.Philip Millard),"External Affairs",'99, who was a friend of Wendy Crewson and a partner on the police department. The plot of the story went in so many directions, I found myself getting lost until the film finally ended. Everyone involved in this story had some very deep dark secrets and all had good reason to be a suspect. Wendy Crewson and Philip Millard finally put some brief romance into the story and I was very glad the film came to and END.
