It had a very familiar ring to it!
29 January 2001 | by (Maine) – See all my reviews

I had seen this mini-series when it first aired, mostly because I am a big fan of Brian Dennehy, and very much enjoyed it. But in the last couple of years, there was a resurgence in the news story of the Kennedy nephew as a suspect in a murder of a young girl, and although I probably never paid attention to it when it first happened, the newer revelations involved having a man from a private school that the nephew attended, and he possibly had "inside info" as a confession or overheard conversation that the nephew was guilty. This school was in Maine, and the owner is also a high-profile owner of the local horse-race track, so now I paid attention to it, and thought this sounded like a movie I saw...Thinking back on it I remembered it was this movie, so I had to watch it again when it was aired on Lifetime this weekend, and now there is no way you could convince me that this novel wasn't based on the story...and the ironic thing is that in the movie the murder took place in a town called Scarborough Hills, and the racetrack the man in question owned is called Scarborough Downs. Had anyone else noticed these similarities?
