Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Another of the PAX network's feature-length Mary Higgins Clark adaptation, All Around the Town wastes little time getting down to business, as popular college professor Allan Grant (Kevin Jubinville) is murdered. Despite her public display of grief, Allan's widow, travel agent Karen (Nastassja Kinski), is well aware of her late husband's reputation as a womanizer. In fact, the prime suspect is one of Allan's nubile young students, Laurie Kinmount (Kim Shraner) -- who happens to be the sister of DA Sarah Kinmount (Andrea Roth), the person in charge of prosecuting the case. Sarah does not want to send her own kid sister to the slammer, but is unable to get a clear story from Laurie, who claims to have no memory of the killing or even of being in the vicinity of the crime. Thus, Sarah joins forces with investigating detective Brandon Moody (Ron Lea) and psychiatrist Justin Donnelly (Michael Shanks) to unlock Laurie's mind -- with startling results. Filmed in Canada, Mary Higgins Clark's All Around the Town was first broadcast on May 18, 2002.
