Spoilers

The official synopsis reads: "The day after the events of 'Killer Timing', a concerned Amy Winslow (Jill Wagner), Travis Burke (Kristoffer Polaha) and Graham Winslow (Robin Thomas) travel to Ithaca, New York to find Amy’s Uncle Alastair (Peter Benson), a history professor at the local college who is missing. Also gone is all of Alastair’s research on the accidental death of a prominent family heir 50 years year ago – a death he believed may have been murder. Amy and Travis join forces with the local sheriff as they work their way through a maze of clues and suspects, including an acerbic corporate CEO, an eccentric patriarch, and Alastair’s estranged wife – a literature professor who, like Amy, specializes in crime fiction."

Cast

Wagner, Polaha, Thomas and Benson aside, 'Mystery 101: Deadly History' also stars Lorne Cardinal (Sheriff Ridgeway), Michael Patrick Denis (Olly Kent), Rhinnan Payne (Lucy Harding), Jenn Maclean-Angus (Sinead Sullivan), Alison Araya (Jennifer Espinosa), Iris Quinn (Eleanor Kent), Jason Cermak (Marco Deleon) and Emma Grabinsky (Janey Sullivan) in key roles.
