Following the car accident that took the life of her insurance man husband Pete Naylor, Bostonian Shelby Naylor, a magazine journalist who recently graduated from writing fluff pieces to hard hitting investigative stories, requires extensive physical therapy to walk without a mobility device again, let alone partake in her favorite pastime, horseback riding. Although it was the bane of her existence, Shelby, after an incident, is encouraged by the police for her own safety to use what seemed to be Pete's favorite toy, a high-powered police scanner which picks up not only police chatter, but any discussion using radio waves. It is that collateral chatter that Shelby becomes most interested in, she continually hearing the cell phone calls of someone named David, who she will eventually learn is David Birkwell. Most of those cell phone calls are arguments with his wife Brenda, but there are just as many of David with other women, one named Alexia with who he seems to be having an ... Written by Huggo

not bad
2 July 2006 | by triple8See all my reviews

This really wasn't bad for a TV psychological thriller type movie. Cherilyn Fenn did a nice job as Shelby and the premise was somewhat intriguing. The whole plot line of Shelby listening on and becoming obsessed with, the radio scanner, was done well and much of the Movie took place at night so there was always an appropriate moodiness to the movie. It's not a must see but it does make one want to know what is going to happen next.

I wouldn't call this the best TV movie out there by any means but it holds one's attention nicely and the worst things I can say about it is it's rather long and there are times where it moves rather slowly. But the movie does very well in the atmosphere department and having Fenn as the star was a good choice, as she's pretty good here. I suppose, in a way the movie could have held more intrigue as this was an interesting premise to build a movie on and though this is far from excellent if one is just looking for a good old fashioned TV mystery to invest some time in, one could do worse.
