Opening with a woman being smothered to death by a man Warren Endicott (Peter O'Brien) and a young girl coming out of her bedroom at the wrong time also suffering the same fate is chilling enough, but as you hear the trial in the background and discover it was his wife and child, he is convincingly denying it and getting off through lack of evidence and no bodies, is just plain horrific, it gave me goosebumps.
Then there is the added trauma of the family left behind desperate to give them a propper burial and a disgruntled cop Jennifer Mapplethorpe (Nadine Garner) wanting to give them that wish.
First she tries the old double jeopardy rule, "tell me where the bodies are you cant be charged" he doesn't fall for it and still states his innocence aloud but whispers to her "Im not that stupid", enraged she loses it and screams at him he's now her personal project and she'll nail him, big mistake as her collegues start to question her ability and she's just made herself Warren's personal project..
As Jennifers cat goes missing and a fresh grave with its collar on is found in her garden, she digs it up to find two dolls wrapped together in plastic, they symbolise mother and daughter.
Also a bunch of cliche moments where he just happens to be where she is all the time, he taunts her by always having a valid reason for being there and she has no proof otherwise, she's spooked but not enough to give up.
Soon her obsession gets her put on leave from work and fuming she steals the files and continues her own investigation, her collegues onto her they also keep an eye on her but so is Warren and as she closes in on finding the bodies of his wife and child, he's more than happy to let her join them for good....
This kept me on the edge of my seat, I only started watching this because of Nadine Garner as I was a huge fan of the Henderson Kids and Class Act, (I have to watch this on youtube as its not in the UK yet and it kept stopping and driving me mad), but teaming her with a psychotic Peter O' Brien who I still think of as Shane from Neighbours was a stroke of genius, the tension between them in the final scenes was gripping, she seemed genuingly terrified while he was cold and calculating. The twist at the end where he had buried mother and daughter hugging because he wanted them to feel comfortable still gives me shivers...just one question though, what did happen to the cat?
