But the day she arrives, a neighbor's teenage daughter goes missing, vanished under the exact same circumstances as Lise's two best friends, fifteen years ago. Determined to prevent history from repeating itself, Lise imposes herself on the local cops, led by hard-boiled detective Clovis, to help find the missing girl.

But as she and Clovis inch closer to the truth, it ... Written by AnonymousB

User Reviews

very enjoyable
27 January 2018 | by ninasimone1519See all my reviews

This series is pretty addictive since there are plenty of suspects with a secret till the very last minute it will still surprise you. every piece of a puzzle fits nicely together. it is not one of the greatest because the main actress "cop" was a bit dull and misfit but not too much to discourage from watching. it will make you watch till the end and that is a well done show for me.
