Storyline

In the small Oregon town in which she lives, Helen Carleton is shot dead point blank four times execution style outside her pet store. There are no eyewitnesses. She is survived by her husband, Nick Carleton, and their three children. After three months, Detective Joe Moran, the lead investigator on the case, officially closes it unsolved, which doesn't sit well with the family. However, he is still working on the case unofficially as he believes that Nick arranged her murder. As such, he asks the eldest Carleton offspring, high school senior Alex Carleton, to assist him on the case, which is against the law as she is still a minor, who would not be under the guidance of her guardian. He doesn't initially tell Alex why he needs her help, but Alex is more than willing to provide whatever assistance she can to catch her mother's killer. When Detective Moran eventually tells Alex his belief about Nick, she is initially reluctant to "spy" on her father. But Nick's behavior - getting rid ... Written by Huggo

Killer Among Us-Guess Who? ***
15 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting, but uneven drama where a woman is blown away in front of her pet shop. She leaves behind her husband and 3 children. Naturally, when daddy has been having an affair for 2 years, attention shifts to him. Of course, he has an alibi, but he could have paid someone to go bang!bang!

The killing seems to have the most impact on the eldest daughter, a high school senior. She now has to become a mother to the 2 younger children, but is soon asked by a police detective to spy on her father so as to gather evidence against him.

What she finds is most perplexing. There is always a birth certificate in these situations.

Even though the detective experienced his own personal loss,why would he jeopardize her life in order to reach a conclusion to this case?

The punishment meted out for this crime proves how ridiculous sentencing can be. Guess who pulled the trigger? Only the killer knows that one. How come the sentenced one didn't open his mouth? There is something lacking here.
