Summary

Summary

How far would you go to keep a secret? When investigative reporter Rowena Price (Berry) learns that her friend's murder might be connected to powerful advertising executive Harrison Hill (Willis), she goes undercover with the help of her associate. Posing as Katherine, a temp at the ad agency, and Veronica, a girl Harrison flirts with on-line, Rowena surrounds her prey from all sides, only to discover she isn't the only one changing identities. The closer we get to learning the truth, the more we understand how far people will go to protect it.


Summary

A hard-nosed star reporter learns who her real friends are -- and gets in way over her head -- investigating a murder in this twisty thriller. Perfect Stranger stars Halle Berry as Rowena, a prominent New York journalist who writes using a pseudonym to entrap some of the tri-state area's most corrupt individuals, using a network of informants, acquaintances, and digital gadgets. When her latest exposé is buried at the behest of her paper's corporate backers, she walks off the job and into a personal quagmire. Her childhood friend Grace (Nicki Aycox) is murdered when she threatens to reveal she's been sleeping with married advertising mogul Harrison Hill (Bruce Wills). With the help of her loyal techie friend Miles (Giovanni Ribisi), she goes undercover -- and online -- to find the smoking gun that will indict Hill. But Rowena soon finds herself caught in a web of manipulation, deceit, and false truths. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
