Storyline

Cars swerve to avoid an agitated man wandering on a freeway until the man is hit by a truck and killed. Eyewitnesses said the man, Pat Fisher, was clearly disturbed, and some on the police force think that no other explanation or investigation is necessary-- except for Detective Tom Monroe (Robert Carlyle, The Full Monty). Finding newspaper clippings, class photos and tape recordings about Fisher's classmates dating back to 1976 in the dead man's apartment, Monroe discovers three other mysterious deaths among the class. Soon the deaths and their strange circumstances, which date back to the kidnapping and murder of 10-year-old Amy Irvine, begin to haunt the detective as much as they did Fisher. In this tense, gripping psychological thriller, Monroe must unravel the mystery of the Class of '76 before, as Fisher warns from beyond the grave, "It won't be suicide, won't be an accident. Every one of us, murdered Written by Anonymous

Variable thriller saved by good acting
8 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As others have written, this thriller starts out as an enthralling and incomprehensible mystery. A young man appears to commit suicide after visiting the site where a classmate was murdered thirty years before. It seems he is haunted by the murder, or is he threatened by the murderer, who has never been caught? Robert Carlyle, who, as usual, gives an excellent performance, plays the detective investigating the mysterious death. However, the show spends a lot of time with spooky photography, revisiting the original murder, and with Carlyle driving up and down country lanes to the town where the murder was committed. We have the usual dimwit Chief Inspector telling him to back off, the somewhat clodhopping junior officer doing it all wrong, and Carlyle taking leave to continue with his investigation because of his obsession with the case. The second episode loses the plot a bit, and it becomes irritating as the plot becomes silly. It was an interesting mystery, well acted, but the end is more than a bit daft and I ended up not feeling very satisfied by it.
