Storyline

While being taped in his car, by the police, committing blackmail, celebrity gossip columnist T.K. Richmond, is killed by a bomb planted in the headrest, and triggered by pushing in his cigarette lighter. Detectives assume, at first, that the murderer must be one of Richmond's blackmail victims, since Richmond has a habit of blackmailing celebrities to keep their stories out of the paper. When they realize the bomb's signature resembles not only the plot of a movie, still in production, but an actual unsolved bombing, Logan and Wheeler turn their attention to the film's screenwriter and production company. Detectives must peel through the layers of lies, motives, suspects, and misleads, to get to the truth. Written by Lynne Boris Johnston

Logan it's a movie. NO. This movie is based on a real case
2 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

An anchorman (Paul DeBoy) has been blackmailed for having sex with call girls. The perp managed to raise some money but when the victim is about to set him up, he blew up together with his car. Detectives start digging in the blackmailer's life: he was a reporter working for the Ledger who used to frame people in order to pursue his personal interests; he's an old-fashioned one, wearing a sixties glasses and still using the typewriter, living off his teenage sister who wants to be an actress. Anyway the reporter had other bound related to movie business and someone want to keep his mouth shut because he's aware of secrets related to a dark WOP screenwriter as well as to an actor died shortly before by heart failure.

Logan lost her brand new partner Falacci, out at Quantico in a training session, so Wheeler comes back and we learn she's now engaged.
