Storyline

Fenton, California is shocked when local lawyer Paul James, a model citizen and house-father considering to stand in municipal elections, is shot in his instantly torched car in front of his home. His second wife Beth is arrested and charged after cash and the murder weapon, Paul's own gun, are found. Insurance investigator Jerry Calhoun, a former cop, on the case because Paul had a life insurance since three weeks, realizes lazy police detective Rhodes's utter incompetence. When Beth escapes, even step-daughter Robin still reports her to the police. Calhoun however makes sure the truth is discovered starting from blackmail and embezzlement Paul was involved in.

not bad
28 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Suspect is a watchable thriller that premiered on Lifetime last night. It stars Jamie Luner as Beth, a woman wrongly accused of murdering her husband, Paul (Adrian Hough). Even her stepdaughter (Taylor Anne Reid) does not believe Beth is innocent, initially. An insurance investigator, Jerry (Christian Bocher) gives her the benefit of the doubt and together they work to find Paul's real killer. The twist at the end of the film made it worth watching.

Jamie Luner is in good form as usual, and honorable mention goes to Christian Bocher, who's character is likable and credible. The Suspect is nicely done and I would say it is satisfying for Jamie Luner fans. Not bad. 8/10
