Our Score
Whodunnit enthusiast Kellie Martin turns amateur sleuth to investigate an apparent suicide in this flat and flimsy pilot for a ten-part series of TV movies. Having inherited her late uncle's bookshop specialising in mystery novels, she puts his stock and her own extensive knowledge to use trying to prove that her former professor and writing idol (Robert Wagner) was actually murdered. Unfortunately, watching her do very little but talk to herself and pore over books becomes increasingly tedious - especially when all tand based on events that we're predominantly told about, rather than shown. Ultimately, the plot's too basic and action-light for its running time, giving everything an underwhelming Nancy Drew vibe that leaves you wondering how any more Mystery Woman films got commissioned.

Summary

A photographer inherits a bookshop specialising in crime novels and soon finds herself embroiled in a real-life conundrum. When her literary idol is found hanged, she refuses to believe it was suicide and tries to prove he was killed to stop him revealing the truth about an unsolved murder. The first in the series of whodunits, starring Kellie Martin and Robert Wagner.
