Nightwaves stars Sherilyn Fenn as Shelby, a newly-widowed woman who lives alone in a mansion. She misses her late-husband terribly, and she is having trouble focusing on her career and recovering from an accident. As a way to distract herself, she begins listening to a police scanner at night. One night, Shelby overhears a disturbing conversation on the police scanner which prompts her to get involved in a dangerous situation.

Sherilyn Fenn did a real nice job as the lead, and Bruce Dinsmore and David Nerman played their parts well. Nanette Workman gave a nice performance in the role of the cutthroat publisher. Nightwaves has everything needed for a fun mystery--great casting choices, good locations, effective score, and the right pacing. Recommended. 8/10
