Quite an intriguing murder mystery.
8 March 2018 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is quite an intriguing murder mystery TV movie, starring Elizabeth Montgomery as a reporter who attempts to solve three crimes. The plot is quite entertaining with its mix of humor, suspense, and drama. It's quite a treat seeing Montgomery from her Bewitched heyday star in this, as well as co-star Audra Lindley, from Three's Company fame.

Grade B
