This scandal shook the foundations of the nation's top law enforcement agency, ending in the first ever conviction of an F.B.I. Agent for murder.

14 July 2020 | by princedlungwaneSee all my reviews

Definitely captured the lure with this actress, very seductive and attractive. Sad that it's a true story. I love true stories, this really delivered the feelings of all that happened as best it could for sure concerning the victim. The FBI agent not so much but yes. Don't miss out. Watch it.
