Someone's terrible secret
2 October 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe never really get any proof during the course of this CI story of the motive of the crime that they are investigating, nor of the perpetrator's guilt. But in the end he's terribly relieved that the secret guilt is out.

A young journalist who is the daughter of a Russian mobster who just wrote a best seller about her life there is gruesomely murdered, her severed head sent to her newspaper.

It's all an elaborate hoax to hide someone's terrible secret of a long ago crime. In fact an absolutely unthinkable crime done by a juvenile who's now a most powerful person.

David Thornton who on SVU plays a recurring very smarmy defense attorney is the powerful person. It's what he did way back when that will unnerve you. This role is most different than what he does on SVU.

Watch this for him, in a way he's relieved that someone figured it out.
