Storyline

Shortly after the death of the father who regularly abused her, steely investigator Sharon Myers moves from the city back to the sleepy burg where she grew up. The morning after a class reunion, the body of a local teacher turns up, and all the evidence points to one Phillip Andrews, who'd had a brief affair with the victim. The only problem is, Phillip is married to Sharon's childhood best friend, Helen - and he's only just broken off yet another tempestuous affair, this one with Sharon herself. Carefully balancing her loyalty to Helen, her obsession with Phillip and the need to keep fellow detective Harry Fielding in the dark, Sharon covertly manipulates the investigation. Eventually, though, Harry and Phillip both begin to suspect that Sharon herself is the killer. Written by Anonymous

Not what I expected
6 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

The story is not as coherent as it should be. Several elements are referred to without any prior mentioning of them. Several sequences are merely stock scenes glued together without meaning. Very very cliché. Several items in the investigation don't add up either. I understand that it is difficult to write these things nowadays, but I had expected something infinitely better after reading the other comments. Also something seems amiss in the casting: the accents are awkwardly mixed, and the actors don't quite fit the characters. The action and enunciation are not fit together. Also, a lot of themes seem to be introduced, which are not followed up, nor even explained. I do admire the attempt to mix the whodunit with the flashbacks, and the psyche of the investigator, but it is no more than an attempt. It seems that nobody knew what they were doing at the time, and took things that could be successful, and put them together, hoping it would become coherent, which it doesn't. It is bizarre, but not in a good way. Honestly, I know quite a few things that are a lot better. Of course, this is all just my humble, yet bitterly honest opinion...
