Intriguing mystery with a chilling twist
16 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An amusement park ride gone wrong results in several deaths after the roller-coaster derails. Originally thought an accident, examination shows that it may in fact been sabotage. To compound the mystery another body is found in the parking lot near the crashed roller coaster, bludgeoned to death. Meanwhile, the death of a young woman is investigated.

The amusement park murders stay compelling as the team uncovers some after-hours hanky panky at the park and a love triangle. The ultimate revelations for this part of the story are delivered effectively. Less compelling is the story of the murdered girl, despite a somewhat engaging motive, since it serves more to flesh out the character of a team member (by contrast). Although a little lukewarm, it meshes well with the stronger story. Ultimately, both stories are intriguing for the slight parallels to each other and the raw humanity behind the culprits' actions.
