Storyline

When a mayoral candidate is assassinated in New York, Frank Devlin has more than a professional interest in the case: Devlin and the candidate's father are bitter enemies. The investigation quickly takes a deadly turn when Devlin finds he's the fall guy in an elaborate setup, and is now the prime suspect in the killing. Double-crossed, pursued by both the police and the mob, Devlin must solve the murder before he becomes the next victim of a cover-up that extends to the highest levels of the city's government.

Quite a suspenseful TV thriller!
13 August 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is quite an interesting and intriguing TV movie starring Bryan Brown as Frank Devlin, a New York cop who has been framed in the assassination of a mayoral candidate. What results is an exciting plot of cat and mouse as Frank tries to dodge the authorities and outrun the mob. Therefore, he must solve the murder before he becomes the next victim of a cover-up.

Good, convincing acting and with plenty of unpredictable motives and elements and surprising moments. This kept the plot engaging and suspenseful and kept me entertained throughout the movie. Touched by an Angel star Roma Downey is the female lead in the movie, portraying Frank's girlfriend Eileen, who gave a rather commanding and sultry performance, and Lloyd Bridges plays one of the main antagonists.

Overall, it's a good TV movie to pass the night.

Grade A
