Sins of the Preacher ***1/2
17 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gail O'Grady goes in record time as a woman who will not listen to other relatives that her son-in-law killed her daughter, to one that leads a crusade against him.

The preacher Andrew appears to be totally off-the-wall practicing his religion in a devout way, but at the same time implicated in the sexual assault of a woman and the ultimate murder of his wife when he takes up with a woman in the town.

You could say that Andrew is remarkable throughout the night of the incident,shedding no tears. One might think he is keeping a bold face for the sake of his two young daughters, now not having a mother.

The family really does a great job in accumulating evidence against him. Why the police and other officials didn't fully investigate is a question.
