Title to Murder is a 2001 independent film directed by Stephen Furst, starring Maureen McCormick and Christopher Atkins, and based on a story by C. Lee Tocci. It had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
While researching an ordinary real estate transaction, title examiner Leah Farrell (McCormick) discovers a property transfer document with the forged name of a missing woman, and proceeds to investigate. When she is threatened by gangsters for snooping around, she turns for help to Assistant District Attorney Paul Shaughnessy (Atkins). As Paul tries to protect Leah from the danger that looms from all sides, romance blooms. The two of them foil the plot to bring illegal gambling activities to a small seaside town in Massachusetts.
