In “Nora Roberts’ High Noon,” expert hostage negotiator Lieutenant Phoebe McNamara (de Ravin) juggles her high pressure career with the demands of raising her young daughter and contending with her agoraphobic mother, Essie (Shepherd). When Phoebe meets handsome bar owner Duncan Swift (Sergei), he can’t resist her take-charge attitude and attempts to earn her affections. Though she tries to resists his charms, Phoebe soon realizes no amount of negotiation will keep Duncan at arm’s length. When Phoebe is assaulted by an unknown assailant in her precinct, she can’t help but be deeply shaken. She later receives a series of mysterious and threatening messages and soon discovers she is the target of a psychopathic killer out to destroy her personally and professionally.
“Nora Roberts’ High Noon” is produced by Mandalay Television and Stephanie Germain Productions for Lifetime Television.
