Storyline

Tim Callahan, aide to New York Senator Lauren Platt, is disappointed that all of the $3 million funding has been pulled from his latest pet project, a safe zone for children and youth. His personal partner, private investigator Donald Strachey, believes Tim's passion for the project stems from the fact of his own sister's troubled youth, she who has been missing since age seventeen. Tim believes his prayers have been answered when a man, identifying himself as a lawyer, tells him that he represents someone who wants to make a $3 million anonymous donation to the project. Those prayers turn into a nightmare when that lawyer is later found murdered, the dead body in Donald's car. The murdered man is Jake Lenigan, a third generation lawyer in a powerful family law firm. Jake's father was murdered twelve years earlier, the perceived suspect in that case being his wife Joan, who has since disappeared. Tim and Donald's situation becomes even more nightmarish when Tim anonymously receives ... Written by Huggo

User Reviews

I am impressed, entertained and touched
29 April 2009 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about Donald Strachey's investigations into the mysterious death of a benefactor who donates $3 million to a charity for children in need.

After watching all four Donald Strachey films, I can easily say this one is my favourite. The plot is varied and well written. It deals with tough topics such as murder of a spouse and child pornography, making the story very engaging. Despite the tough plot, the story still radiates warmth and love. Donald Strachey's love for Tim is as heartwarming as always; while how Donald keeps his promise to Leila shows that mankind is capable of good deeds. I am impressed, entertained and touched by "Ice Blues". I recommend it to everyone.
