Synopsis by Mark Deming
Money and lust make a dangerous combination in this thriller. Jack Ramsey (Patrick Bergin) is a private detective hired by wealthy businessman Richard Whitmore (Daniel Pilon) to trail his wife Isabelle (Jayne Heitmeyer). Richard is convinced Isabelle is having an affair, and Jack is able to confirm those suspicions. When Isabelle's lover is found murdered, Jack thinks Richard is the most likely suspect, but Richard wants Jack to help refocus the investigation on another suspect, Vic Mulvey (Gary Busey), a radical who has been threatening blackmail against Richard and his firm. While Jack has misgivings about this, Richard has deep pockets and Jack is the owner of an empty wallet, so he goes along. The deeper Jack digs into the case, the more he runs into Isabelle, and soon the two are having an affair. However, when several of their friends and associates turn up dead, Jack has to start asking serious questions about the killer, and who the next victim will be. Director Alain Zaloum apparently worked with two of his favorite actors on Suspicious Minds; he previously cast Gary Busey in Canvas and Night Caller, while he worked with Patrick Bergin again on his subsequent film Taxman (1999).
