Description by OLDIES.com:
Based on Barbara Paul's acclaimed book, Kill Fee, this sharp-edged thriller follows a cunning hitman who painstakingly selects his clients and victims. He then commits the murder without the "beneficiary's" knowledge and sends them an invoice for $100,000, with a threat that nonpayment will result in being framed for the murder. Seasoned Police Detective Lt. Murtaugh must outwit the clever executioner in order to salvage both his job and his self-respect.
Television veterans Patrick Duffy and William Devane star in the made-for-TV crime drama MURDER C.O.D. Serial killer Alex Brandt (Devane) is ingeniously preying on the citizens of Portland, Oregon: after murdering his victims, he blackmails their enemies into paying $100,000 or else be framed for murder. Recognizing the killer's m.o. from a previous case in Chicago, police detective Tim Murtaugh (Duffy) sets out to outwit the self-created hitman in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse that might claim his wife Ellie (Chelsea Field) as the next victim. Directed by Alan Metzger, this taut thriller is adapted from Barbara Paul's bestselling mystery novel KILL FEE.
