First and only John Saul adaptation
19 July 2001 | by (Brighton, UK) – See all my reviews

Saw this on UK TV some years back - just as my interest in John Saul reached a peak.

Not a bad film, really - considering the TV-movie limitations imposed on it

  • but not so great either.




If you like John Saul give it a go - otherwise......don't bother.
