The viewer is not deceived most of the time

This is a fairly routine but still entertaining made for TV murder mystery movie. Much of it is predictable but the writers have left room in the script for a few surprises, especially toward the end when Erin (Dina Meyer) begins to see the truth, or thinks she sees the truth. The story concerns a decoy who is on the payroll of a local private dick. Her job is to set up married men whose wives are clients who want to see their husbands in compromising positions for various reasons usually involving money. Erin feels cheap about her job but desperately needs the money. Along the way she falls for one of the married men who seeks to get back at her after he is exposed to his wife. In turn he falls for her. Added to this is a former cheating husband she exposed who is out to kill her. The acting is average to above average for a television flick. One part of the film bothered me. Why did Erin keep using the alley by the PI's office when she was nearly murdered there? Wasn't there another way out of the building that had more light and more security? And why did she always walk the alley alone? Oh, well, that's television land.
