Here are the synopses of the Fallen Angels Murder Club movies, which are based on the Fallen Angels Book Club novels by R. Franklin James and produced by Brain Power Studio:
Fallen Angels Murder Club: Friends to Die For
The members of the Fallen Angels Murder Club must have two things in common: a love for books and a criminal record. Hollis Morgan (Braxton) meets both requirements. Left holding the bag in an insurance fraud scheme concocted by her ex-husband, Hollis served her time and now hopes the court will pardon her conviction so she can fulfill her dream of becoming a lawyer. But when a member of her book club is murdered in a scene straight out of the previous night’s novel, Hollis becomes the subject of police scrutiny. Refusing to get stuck with another bad rap, Hollis sets out to investigate her fellow club members and after a second book-inspired murder, she races to identify the killer before she becomes the next victim. Eddie Cibrian also stars.
Fallen Angels Murder Club: Heroes and Felons
The members of the Fallen Angels Murder Club must band together again as they search for answers surrounding the death of one of their own.
