This product came a day late, and had the longest time to ship when ordered (3 other items from various vendors, including Amazon, arrived earlier than the promised date). The DVD arrived in good condition.
This was a great thriller. It has this 1980s quality to it -- which means it does not rely on special effects and blood splatter to pull in the viewer. Instead, it works due to good writing and acting. I am surprised that it does not have more reviews. This is a very entertaining film. I am now going to watch the others in the series.
The only criticism I could offer is that there were so many characters in this film that it was difficult to keep the names together. Perhaps the other shows introduce the characters; I didn't know it was series until doing some web research. This is only a minor flaw.
One of the four movies in the 'Joanne Kilbourne Mysteries', A COLDER KIND OF DEATH is a competent little thriller. Wendy Crewson returns as Kilbourne, who is shocked when the murderer of her husband is finally caught after six years. The accused professes his innocence, but in vain when a sniper kills him on the way out of the police station. Who is responsible and why did they kill him. The accused also has a malicious wife, played with seething venom by Kari Matchett, who suggests she had an affair with the late Mr. Kilbourne. The suspects include a cache of politically motivated friends, including Oscar nominee Teri Garr (from TOOTSIE).
Brad Turner keeps his direction crisp, and the performances overall are very good. Victor Garber (now on ABC's ALIAS) has a solid presence as Kilbourne's ex-partner.
I've enjoyed the three of these movies I've viewed so far; they're intelligent and good mysteries.
