Storyline

Kate Graham believed to have a perfect marriage, but after not touching her for months her husband Duke Fairbanks, who had an affair with her friend Diana Coles, demands a divorce. She waves the prenuptial-fixed sum of nearly a million dollars, so he lets her have the house temporarily while he lives on the yacht; his corpse is found there shortly after. An unknown man who claims he killed Duke 'for her' demands 10% of his vast inheritance. When her gay friend is arrested, without bail, she asks her lawyer to defend him. The killer orders her to have dinner, shakes the Seattle PD detective Paul Tannon, proves he knows her preferences, explains how he set Jim up and doubles his tariff to 20% now she has two lives to pay off.

Don't waste a couple of hours of your life watching this
9 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There's nothing about this film that is even remotely believable. Grey, overcast skies, oh, I recognize that place, it's Vancouver, Canada - home of the worst movies in the world! And this is yet another piece of garbage from there. Some guy named Harvey Kahn makes these terrible films. Here is an excerpt of something he said during the making of this film

>>In the 1967 classic The Graduate, Dustin Hoffman's title character gets some succinct career advice from a friend's father: "Plastics!" Vancouver-based producer Harvey Kahn, here to shoot Murder on Spec, had a similar experience in the 1970s. "I had a guy come up and put his arm around me and he said, 'Cable!'"<<

Yeah, well that guy that put his arm around Mr. Kahn must have seen some of his earlier work because this garbage ain't gonna ever be seen anywhere BUT cable so he was sure right about that!
