Emmy�-nominated actress Kellie Martin (�Life Goes On�) is Samantha Kinsey, an amateur sleuth who inherits her uncle�s mystery book store and discovers that crime speaks volumes when she uses clues from the books to solve real-life crimes. Three-time NAACP Image Award-nominee (�The General�s Daughter�) Clarence Williams III (�Mod Squad�) is Philby, Samantha�s mysterious crime-solving partner. Mystery Woman also stars Nina Siemaszko (�The West Wing�) and Casey Sander (�Grace Under Fire�).
