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

almost an OK TV movie

Kelly Holden (Shiri Appleby) is still haunted by her sister Alison's murder a year ago. She reads Graydon Jennings (Chris Potter)'s latest murder mystery and is shock to see so many similarities with her sister's murder. When she talks to Graydon, he reveals that the murder is based on another murder. They go off together to investigate Alison's murder. Kelly discovers Alison's diary with the name Cicero. The code name alluding to the Roman senator leading them to the modern day Senator Darren Hartford (Matt Cooke). Also there is Alison's former boyfriend Hank (Paul Hopkins) who could be a suspect.

This is a Lifetime TV movie in every ways especially the production value. Shiri Appleby does really well as the damsel in distress. However there is just a few nagging plot points that is never addressed. When Graydon mentions the other girl, there is an obvious serial killer angle that is missed. Also Graydon as a suspect is dismissed almost immediately. These need to be explained much better. The plot has some possibilities as a standard murder mystery, but it's not quite good enough to recommend.
