I seem to have run out of quality mystery movies, and am out seeking a second or third tier. This at least had Sydney, and I now live in Australia.
Yet another mystery where out of the blue with no warning, the trusted policewoman is revealed to be the lost orphan who will inherit a fortune. And this is revealed in the most contrived of mortal threats to our innocent woman. She is saved by the mysterious cop who — natch — becomes her lover. (The old lover is killed in the melee.)
Along the way, an improbable involvement of a chocolatier and her product are woven in
This is a reasonable enough production but of a genre that does not deserve to exist, alas.
