Storyline

Brilliant New York crime author Graydon Jennings accepts to help Kelly Holden investigate her sister Allison's murder, which seems uncannily equal to one his anti-hero-lead character Carlton James's kills for the thrill. In the sisters' Vermont home, starting from her diary, they come up with a theory Senator Darren Hartford sent the murderer to keep his adultery covered up. The sting of the tale is in the tail, for several parties. Written by KGF Vissers

It was okay

Warning to those with epilepsy: don't watch the first five minutes.

Crime author Graydon Jennings narrates the first scenes of this movie, which take place in a dance club with strobe lighting. I say crime author because his books are like "Columbo" movies. You know who did it, but the idea is to watch the investigation.

A year after the murder of her sister Alison, bartender Kelly of Manchester, Vermont, sees Jennings being interviewed and buys one of his books. Amazed by the similarities to her sister's case, Kelly goes to a book signing in Burlington and persuades Jennings to investigate the murder. He agrees.

Weird things start happening. Hank, a frequent customer at Clyde's Bar where Kelly works, liked Alison a lot and continues stalker-like behavior. The prime suspect in Alison's murder, though, seems to be Senator Hartford, one of many men she spent time with. At least he is believed to be "Cicero" from Alison's diary.

Kelly confronts Hartford, but there's no real evidence, and Hartford wants Kelly silenced.

Despite this being a TV-movie, certain words to describe Alison's promiscuous behavior are used. In flashbacks, we see Alison behaving badly. But the most sexy scene is the one where Kelly's friend Linda stays over (because Kelly is afraid) and takes a shower after running.

During the second half, there are some scary moments, but this is an ordinary thriller at best.

There's nothing that special here. Matt Cooke is pretty good as the senator. Chris Potter's narration at the beginning raises expectations, and he has some good moments later, but this is nothing more than a Lifetime-type movie, and not one of the better ones. But it is entertaining enough, and not too violent.
