Storyline

Police detective Christopher Shay was shot during the Penny Romig murder investigation years ago. His then partner, Matt Carson, ends up confessing he was blackmailed with his own alcohol abuse by plausibly dirty police captain Murphy, after Chris's young daughter Sara convinces her mother Kim she somehow incarnates Peggy's memory. The only hope to get to the crucial autopsy reports is coroner Dr. Marquette's office. An elaborate cover-up proves dangerous for all. Written by KGF Vissers

Possession and the Law
10 July 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Tightly-attired widow Paula Trickey (as Kim) jumps out of her bed to comfort screaming 10-year-old daughter Alexia Fast (as Sara). The mature-looking girl has been having nightmarish flashbacks to an incident which killed her police officer father Christopher "Chris" Shay, and a mysterious woman, in the line of duty. Incredibly, young Fast seems to be assuming the identity of the woman murdered alongside detective Shay. Of course, this raises Ms. Trickey's eyebrows. She tries to investigate new facts being revealed by her daughter, but the police are uncooperative and Adrian Hough (as Robert Marquette) can't get the case re-opened. Only detective Michael Rogers (as Matt Carson), who loved Officer Shay like a brother, seems helpful. His more natural characterization also helps this supernatural crime drama. But, while we do discover what happened, the supernatural angle is never quite clear or believable.

**** Past Tense (8/12/06) Penelope Buitenhuis ~ Paula Trickey, Alexia Fast, Michael Rogers, Adrian Hough
