Storyline

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful 13 year old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victms - a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story - and survive this homecoming. Written by Jessica Silva

Excellent
28 August 2018 | by leequattrucciSee all my reviews

The reviews that rate this series poorly, (or comment on how slow it is) likely thought this was going to be a murder mystery. It is about murder, but the "who-dun-it" is secondary. This is a character study in damaged human beings, how they got to that point, and the different ways it manifests in their lives. It is dark and unflinching in some places, and it is fascinating. It is also incredibly well acted. The "slow burn" pace is a dramatic marinade, allowing us to really soak in the character and absorb the experience. It makes the finale that much more impactful, and what a twisty finale it was! If you like character driven stories wrapped in a murder mystery, this will not disappoint.
