A fall or a push?
21 March 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Why would a young woman with a great job and great life jump to her death?

A very good story, I liked the involvement of a high profile athlete, Don Gilet was excellent as Carlton Johns, an interesting character, I'm intrigued to know just what is going on with Alice.

Sam is struggling after the events in the previous case, and she's not afraid to break the rules in order to discover the truth. I had forgotten how much she and Leo clashed, an interesting dynamic between the pair, was his character threatened by Sam?

A nice touch having Sally Gunnell on it.

Intriguing, 8/10.
