First-class legal thriller mini-series
19 August 2018 | by contact-562-20249See all my reviews

Burden of Truth is a first-class legal thriller mini-series. It is one of the most-engaging legal mini-series ever produced. Reminiscent of the intensity of the 1960s series The Defenders.

A lawyer is sent to a small Canadian town to resolve claims a client's drug might be causing local girls to get sick. That starts her on a quest to find the cause of the illness.

Great script and top-notch acting by Kristin Kreuk and Peter Mooney in the lead roles.

Intrigue. Romance. Danger. Sleazy lawyers. Corrupt police and politicians. Family feuding and secrets. Can't ask for more!
