Storyline

Dave Kominek of the Marion County Sheriff's Department in Salem, Oregon is the lead investigator in the case of two cleaning women, Shari Hull and Beth Williams, who, at an office complex job site one evening, were raped and shot by an intruder. While Shari died from her injuries, Beth miraculously survived two gunshot wounds to her head. The perpetrator was wearing a hoodie, black gloves and had tape, like a bandage, across the bridge of his nose. In questioning a shaken Beth, Dave, taking one seemingly minor statement she makes, believes that this case may be tied to a series of robberies/sexual assaults/murders of females along Interstate-5 (I-5) - the primary highway running north-south along the United States west coast - each incident taking place within a few blocks of a highway off-ramp. In pulling together investigators from each of those cases, Dave does believe they have a serial killer on the loose. Further information tying the cases together is the not often used .32-...

Good for a TV Movie
17 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Beth Williams (Sara Canning) is a nighttime cleaner at an office building with her co-worker. One night an armed mask man breaks in. After he violates them, he shoots them but Beth survives the ordeal. Police detective Dave Kominek (John Corbett) is investigating the crime, and soon he figures out that it's related to a whole series of murders by the same serial killer around the I-5.

I see there are many complaint about accuracy. I'm not going to dwell on any of that. After all, it's a Lifetime TV movie not an in-depth documentary. John Corbett is a compelling leading man. His character's struggle especially his home life is well done. Sara Canning makes for a good victim without overplaying it. The story moves along well. It's a good TV movie.
