A predictable mystery and lost love gone bad
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Agent Lilly Rush investigates an elderly woman's murder, suspecting the victim's grandson may have something to do with it. Turns out something more to the story than a case of possible family homicide. Catherine Morris gives a firm performance as Lilly Rush while interrogating the victim's grandson for further details. Silas Weir Mitchell plays the grandson and possible suspect James Hogan, who gives a brilliant performance, both chilling and convincing. It also combines a mystery/homicide with details of lost love of an ex-girlfriend from the past. Good show, very predictable, but worth watching if you want to remember your old first loves at youth.
