Amateur detective Joanne Kilbourn (Crewson) investigates when an ex-hooker is murdered outside her daughter's shop, and her son's fiance subsequently commits suicide. Third made-for-CTV Joanne Kilbourn Mystery is slickly produced, but the underlying emotional threads of the novel (involving guilt and self-recrimination) are kind of muted, making it no more than an O.K. detective story. As well, the heart of the original novel -- dealing with child molestation and kiddie porn -- has been eliminated entirely from the film! Joanne Vannicola replaces Colombe Demers as Kilbourn's eldest daughter.
