Is it Suicide?
30 August 2011 | by dolytuovSee all my reviews

Dermot Walsh plays a reporter for a British magazine who has been given an assignment of writing story about Jane Hale, who the police say has committed suicide. The editor wants the Walsh to dig into the woman's life to find out why she did it.

When Walsh begins investigating but initially looking at the autopsy report and quizzing the police the asking questions to people who knew Hale trying to find out what she way like and anything that might indicate why she committed suicide. Things start heating up, and he realizes that there is more to the woman's death than what the police knew.

One of the more interesting Danzinger Brothers efforts.
