Storyline

Californian food tycoon Melville Horning dies, apparently drowned accidentally on a yacht cruise with his firm's four executive directors, actually murdered. The prime suspect, his security chief Jim Monroe, implores his former CSA colleagues to investigate, claiming jurisdiction as the recent machinations in the firm, probably inside trading, not only affected stock prices but also US export. Frank and Jane work out what's with a recent TV interview, allegedly live, the yacht cruise, each director's possible motives and the fifth executive who actually succeeded as CEO. Meanwhile good son Nick gets into trouble by trying to help his foolish brat sister cover up her reckless college fund speculation. Written by KGF Vissers

Cereal killer
26 January 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lea Thompson stars and and is also the director of this Hallmark Channel movie of a suburban housewife who also moonlights as a government agent.

A former Central Security Agency operative Jim Monroe (Dorian Harewood) who used to work with Jane Doe got fired for being drunk on the job. His boss a cereal company tycoon fell overboard at night but was successfully retrieved. A few days later just after he had given a live television interview he has been found drowned.

Monroe is concerned and insists that he was not drunk on the job yet no one has thought of running a blood test on him.

Jane Doe investigates and finds out that almost all the executives of the company had sold their shares options a few days earlier and when she goes to the television studio she figures that the live television interview may not had been live.

There is a sub plot about her daughter who has used her student fund to purchase shares in the cereal company which have dived after the death of the owner of the company.

The film is certainly cheesy and Lt Colombo will not be having any sleepless nights regarding the depth of the mystery here. It is undemanding viewing even the daughter panicking about the fall in the share prices does not sound right. W K Kellogg has been dead for decades but it seems to have had little effect in the sales of Rice Krispies.
