Storyline

In the small Oregon town in which she lives, Helen Carleton is shot dead point blank four times execution style outside her pet store. There are no eyewitnesses. She is survived by her husband, Nick Carleton, and their three children. After three months, Detective Joe Moran, the lead investigator on the case, officially closes it unsolved, which doesn't sit well with the family. However, he is still working on the case unofficially as he believes that Nick arranged her murder. As such, he asks the eldest Carleton offspring, high school senior Alex Carleton, to assist him on the case, which is against the law as she is still a minor, who would not be under the guidance of her guardian. He doesn't initially tell Alex why he needs her help, but Alex is more than willing to provide whatever assistance she can to catch her mother's killer. When Detective Moran eventually tells Alex his belief about Nick, she is initially reluctant to "spy" on her father. But Nick's behavior - getting rid ... Written by Huggo

Not Very Good
22 September 2017 | by geoffox-766-418467See all my reviews

Once again we have an inept leading lady attempting to act. In this case she is trying to pass herself off as a high school student. Being rather long in the tooth it is hard to believe. She runs around (no pun intended as we are asked to believe she is a track star) hair flying in the breeze which is typical of LMN leading ladies - long hair that looks so common and uninteresting. Her performance was boring as she spoke every line in a monotone two note level it put you to sleep. There wasn't any performance that came off realistic or interesting in the entire film. Possibly the mother, who was killed off in the opening credits. Who writes this stuff? Who casts this stuff? Who directs this stuff? Most importantly, who pays for this stuff? For surely there are more worthwhile projects that deserve more attention. And better actresses than LMN finds to star in most of their films. Josie Davis is the only one that comes across as a decent actress. Even she deserves better material.
