When Martha meets Linda’s husband, Eddie, he is of course, the murderer. Martha keeps mum. Seems ex-con Eddie works for land developer Potter (Barry Corbin), who owns just about everything, including a nasty set of manners. Potter wanted the dead man’s land.
Martha spins into a whirlwind of activity, finally tells an unbelieving Linda what Eddie did, and gets herself into hot water. Then, she’s suddenly chummy with the DA (William Converse Roberts).
All this lumbers by without conviction. Anderson’s thesping is earnest surface stuff. Rice and Greg Evigan make good stabs at their roles. Corbin looks intense, and Roberts ambles amiably through the DA part.
Tech credits are OK; only the trashy, overly familiar plot gets in the way.
