      The second part of Deadly Matrimony focuses on how Brian Dennehy’s detective sergeant character of John Reed sets out to find out who killed Dianne Masters, and once he knows, to take care of cleaning up the corrupted Chicago police department.

      Dennehy is a commanding presence on film. While he can play a teddy bear, he’s equally frightening as an opposing adversary. When he goes up against Treat Williams, who plays the murderer, it is sometimes intense. It’s two tough guys going

      at it, and it makes for good television.

      Not only that, but Dennehy’s Jack Reed has to go up against his fellow cops and must literally fight for his own survival as he works to make Chicago a just town to live in. All the while, his wife, Arlene (Susan Ruttan), is supportive but eager for his attentions at home. Personal conflict is often a way to beef up a story.

      Lisa Eilbacher really excelled in this second half. Her character of Nina ...

      • Sloane stumbles onto the truth, turning her life upside down. It was a solid performance that evoked many emotions of sorrow and fear.

        This second half was much like its own movie, and it was well done. I can see why the Reed character was brought back for more action later on.

        The kicker for me, though, was something I was completely unaware of until the very end of the second half, and that is that this was apparently based on a true story

        because they put up a crawler that updated everyone. I had no clue until then.

        That fact sent a chill through me. I just hate to know that there is such evil out there in the real world. In fact, I was curious so after typing this I did a web search and found out there’s a ton of information on this infamous crime. The real Alan Masters, the murderer, actually died in 2000. It’s amazing what you learn by watching TV.
