Storyline

Sam Ryan is reunited with newly promoted DCI Michael Connor when they investigate a fire in a cinema. Sam manages to identify all but one of the 12 victims, body #10. As she gathers more information, including the use of a facial reconstruction, she comes to believe that body #10 is in fact someone who was supposed to have been killed years before and for which Chris Caldwell was convicted of murder. Sam becomes quite attracted to him and manages to get him set free, but when others are subsequently murdered, Connor doesn't believe Caldwell is quite as innocent as Sam believes.

Too Much Too Soon
26 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The basic premise is very good. We have several people, burned beyond recognition when a fire breaks out in a small independent cinema. Sam is brought in an is soon working with a former police boss who has always been in love with her. The late nineties technology is fascinating (e.g. the use of facial recognition software). Things fall apart when Sam falls head over heels for the guy she just got off because his murder victim was still alive. It seems almost contrived and utterly unrealistic for one as cautious as Sam.
