A doctor meets a handsome, successful man and soon marries him--unaware that he cheated on his first wife, raped her, abused and tortured his children, and when his wife was about to leave him, murdered her.
A young girl discovers, to her disgust, that naked photos of her have been uploaded to numerous social media websites from a "revenge porn" webpage. When nothing is done, she makes it her personal crusade to find the perpetrator.
After twelve years of being away, Lisa Monroe returns to her usually quiet hometown of Milford to work as a police detective. She was recruited by her childhood friend, now Lieutenant Joe O'Conner. The first case on which she works as lead investigator is the death of Louise Dexter, her grandmother. Although the autopsy points to the death being accidental, Lisa finds evidence that implicates Jake Mitchell as the murderer. Jake Mitchell raped and killed Lisa's best friend Jenny Rand fifteen years earlier. Jake has been paroled and has returned to Milford to live. At his trial, he vowed revenge on the four people who testified against him, namely Louise, Sergeant Stuart Kling (Lisa's colleague who does not respect her investigative abilities), a security guard named Vinnie DiCampo, and Lisa herself. To some extent, all four feel guilty, but especially Lisa, about not preventing Jenny's death, each who had an opportunity that day to intervene in the interaction between Jake and Jenny. ...

This is the stuff from Mitchell's toolbox?
These are interesting, I'll check them against my Grandma's lock.

Well that's the quiet smoking gun, but every little bit helps.
Joe, Mitchell came to my house last night to talk. He claims he's being set up.
Really? What a surprise.
Well, no, the surprise is I think I believe him.

Gabrielle Anwar stars in "Try to Remember," a 2004 film based on a short story by Mary Higgins Clark. Anwar plays a policewoman who returns to her hometown from Detroit after many years, only to be confronted with the old murder case of her best friend again. The killer has been released, and court witnesses are being murdered.
Mary Higgins Clark always has a heroine, one very obvious suspect (male), one or two men who might be suspects, and then one or two men who would never be suspected. It wasn't hard to figure this one out.
The cast is very attractive - besides Anwar, there is Max Martini, Diego Wallraff, and David Richmond-Peck, all lookin' good. Garry Chalk, a familiar face, plays a detective on the force.
A lot of the Mary Higgins Clark adaptations are, like this one, done in Canada, but many have been produced by Sonny Grosso. This one was not, but it isn't any better. All that's missing is Sonny's familiar Psycho-type music.
