From the Plot Summary: "When a local successful executive is murdered in an explosion at his mansion, suspicions point to an attractive female investigative reporter who was close to the man and working undercover on a story about corporate scandal. Brought in by the police to help solve the crime, Dr. Maxwell has a mind that outwits the apparent. He throws himself into a world of corporate schemes to uncover a long list of hard-nosed men and women with big-money motives for murder."

If you enjoy shows like "Murder She Wrote", "Matlock", "Diagnosis Murder", or "Columbo", you will find exactly what you're looking for here. It's from the team of Hargrove and Nyby, so you're not going to get an edge-of-your-seat thriller, but for this genre, it's reasonably enjoyable.

Although ultimately forgettable, the cast performs professionally as you would expect, and it's not a bad way to spend a few hours.

Rating: Average - 5/10
