Storyline

Victor Sandeman is a senior partner with Brunel Global Securities. He is experiencing major financial problems, ones that can be solved if the planned $100 million merger of the company takes place. However, the company's owner, Raymond Brunel, is against the merger. Thinking that he can overpower the ineffective David Brunel, Raymond's grandson and the company's heir apparent, Victor murders the elderly Raymond (trying to make it look like a death by natural causes) so that he can go ahead with the planned merger. The one glitch in the murder is a possible witness, Christine Sternwald. A paralegal and aspiring lawyer, Christine is just putting her life back together following a sexual assault three years earlier. When Victor and Christine meet shortly after the murder in a fender bender with Victor driving the deceased Raymond's car, Victor is forced to identify himself to her as Raymond Brunel. Because of this chance meeting and the possibility that she did see the murder take place... Written by Huggo

Natasha shines through this film
19 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Natasha Gregson Wagner acts very well in this above average TV film. I was left surprisingly pleased with it, for all it was an afternoon movie! The film has many thrills and lots of dramatic irony moments that made me want to shout out at the screen to warn the heroine and others.

Natasha plays an aspiring legal who does n't know that she has witnessed a murder and is unaware that the murderer is pursuing her.

The sub plots is interesting with a reliable fiancé , stolidly supporting her. The bad guy in this film is excellently and nervously played showing a man on the edge.

I would just like to know what happened to the policeman at the end.
