Storyline

Californian food tycoon Melville Horning dies, apparently drowned accidentally on a yacht cruise with his firm's four executive directors, actually murdered. The prime suspect, his security chief Jim Monroe, implores his former CSA colleagues to investigate, claiming jurisdiction as the recent machinations in the firm, probably inside trading, not only affected stock prices but also US export. Frank and Jane work out what's with a recent TV interview, allegedly live, the yacht cruise, each director's possible motives and the fifth executive who actually succeeded as CEO. Meanwhile good son Nick gets into trouble by trying to help his foolish brat sister cover up her reckless college fund speculation. Written by KGF Vissers

The cereal killer
14 May 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Breakfast foods tycoon David Groh is rescued from having gone overboard from his yacht on which he's on a sailing cruise with his company Vice Presidents one of whom he suspects of having leaked information about substandard product sent to third world countries to a Michael Moore like documentary film maker. But after the yacht has landed he's found in fact drowned on a beach. Dorian Harewood who was his security chief and former CSA agent is blamed for the death having fallen off the wagon. Harewood's drinking got him canned from the Central Security Agency in the first place.

But what are good friends and agents like Joe Penny and Lea Thompson for if not to call on. If it wasn't Groh's death now becomes a matter of national security.

I'm not as pleased with this Hallmark series of mystery solving women as with others. It reminds me a lot of a warmed over version of the old series The Scarecrow And Mrs. King.

Groh was not a nice man and a lot of people would have motives. Look for a nice performance by Helen Slater who succeeds Groh as president of the company to the plaudits of all.

The whole series concept is a bit much.
