Storyline

Sydney Carpenter was happy as a housewife devoted to her husband Matthew and their little boy Adam, till they both die in a boat accident. Shortly after she's irritated when local PD Det. Jim Sanders tells her probably nothing can be done, but soon she finds him most helpful, especially after FBI Special Agent Kyle Lassiter insists he walks away from the case. They dig on as she is the target of more criminal visits, discovering Matthew had a dark past and got into the witness protection program, but are told that his staged accident actually killed him...

Frustrating stew of credibility problems
26 February 2010 | by (Pittsburgh, PA, USA) – See all my reviews

Not sure what I expected, but in many ways this was a disappointment of a thriller. The protagonist's (Vanessa Marcil) attitude, her intent from the very beginning to get her son back (but not the husband), had me confused. A little back story of marital problems would have been most welcome -- especially since the actor portraying the husband (Thomas Gibson) acted rings around the official police detective love interest (James Wilder).

The whole FBI subplot thing -- including the courtroom scenes -- had no credibility at all, and Agent Lassiter (Leland Orser) was such a chore to watch that at one point I considered just turning the blame thing off. And the wife's best friend (Rosalind Chao) was never even given the dignity of a name.

Maybe some other viewers will be satisfied with the ending. I do not feel that much of a job was done knitting up plot lines. I was left thinking, "Wait, is that all there is? What about A and B and C?"
