A strong entry
8 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, this series is certainly going out strong. The storyline in this one is strong but sad (well, it is about murder). A decorated Iraq and Afghanistan veteran now working as a private security guard is found dead of a shotgun blast to the head. The investigation itself is interesting and the young actress who plays the 16 year old vamp is excellent. The scene where she is being interrogated is almost frightening for the total lack of moral sensibility the girl exhibits. The side story of identifying the culprit who leaked sensitive departmental information is also very well done. Ditto for the scene where the person apologizes to his colleagues. All accept the apology but one. As to be expected, the best scene is the final one where Brenda is highly distraught and is agonizing over what her mother wanted to talk to her about. This could have been maudlin but was in fact heartbreaking. This was such a human "woulda, coulda, shoulda" response to pain and tragedy, one to which most of us can probably relate.
