Goofs

The drug used to poison Oscar Silva is said to be Methylphenidate, better known by its brand name Ritalin. During his allocution, Nelson Lehman claims he mixed "twelve 500-milligram capsules" of Methylphenidate into Silva's cereal. However,the maximum amount that any single formulation Ritalin capsule or tablet contains is 60mg, and that is for a 24-hour extended-release formulation. The idea of a 500mg Methylphenidate capsule is ludicrous by itself, and in an individual prone to high blood pressure or aneurysm, would possibly cause death on its own. See more »

The only innocent one
22 September 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When Elliott Villar, a Brazilian doctor and controversial climate change denier is poisoned but survives the attempted murder it was first assumed it has something to do with his work and his views.

Nothing could have been further from the truth. This all springs from a custodial battle involving Villar's wife Tammy Blanchard who ran off with Villar to Brazil taking her little daughter Kristen Bough with her. Her former husband Tony Hale is in the same field, but these people hardly act like dispassionate scientists when it comes to custody of their daughter.

The grandparents especially grandfather Michael Tucker get into the mix as well though I won't say how. It all gets sorted out in terms of criminal culpability. But all you will walk away with is how terrible it will be growing up for this little girl knowing what she will learn about all who are near and dear to her.
