Storyline

Charlie confronts Ruth with the knowledge that she was in Jason's house on the day he died,forcing Ruth to admit they had sex but she left him alive. As Charlie releases her she explains how she saw Aidan with the mysterious woman,who,Aidan tells the police,is his step-sister,Mary Trelease. In interview Mary confirms this and believes Aidan said she was dead to put his past behind him. However Simon finds out that Aidan's drunken,abusive step-mother was also named Mary Trelease,who supposedly fell downstairs and accidentally died. Thus both Mary and Aidan are seen as potential killers and Charlie and Simon,now lovers,must discover which,if either,murdered Jason Blacksmith. Written by don @ minifie-1

If a novel is to complicated to put it on television , why even bother?

The scriptwriter used one full name and two Christian names , opens with the statement from Aiden, from the novel and from there on goes a completely other direction. the reason , why Aiden makes the confession, the reason why Ruth told Charlie, the relationship between Aiden and Mary Trelease etc etc. Nothing is sacred. Sophie Hannah's novel is so complicated, one is constantly put on the wrong foot, but has a brilliant plot, which end a bit over the top, but it works in this thriller. But i guess this won't fit in a 2 45-minutes episode. Furthermore I absolutely don not recognize Charlie and Siom in these two irritating TV-characters. Of course Charlie in the novel is a whole other zone personally and professionally because of events in book 2, not used for this series. And the dislike from DI Proust for Simon is transferred to Charlie on TV. I know that scripts change some things for adaptation, but when you completely put aside the whole plot from the novel, i think is a complete insult to the novel. And where did Ruth husband from? Maybe it is watchable without the novel. Did you read the novel, stay far away for this!

I hope that (maybe the BBC) can have another go with it, from the start, and then give it more screen time if it is necessary for this to put it correct on the tube.
