A gripping story of power, betrayal and murder. When an esteemed Law professor is discovered murdered, detective Amanda Reeve (supermodel Rachel Hunter) is pulled off a case that she has been working on involving a serial killer who stalks and murders young women while taunting the detectives who are after him. She is re-assigned to the "Emerson" case by the powerful District Attorney Edward Mills (James Russo). Amanda quickly finds herself drawn into an investigation where the truth could cost powerful men their positions and reputations. During her investigation, Amanda questions two law students, who are as intelligent as they are beautiful. They seem to hold some of the answers to the murder. However, their motive is not to reveal the professor's killer; rather, they want to expose the truth about Emerson's sexual involvement with some of his students, a matter which the District Attorney is determined to keep hidden. Amanda becomes infuriated when she finds that Emerson's past, as well as her belief that there is a connection between the serial murders and the Emerson killing, are matters that those in power will not pursue. Adding to Amanda's problems is that her former lover, Assistant District Attorney, William Cobb (Matt Battaglia) could be part of the cover up. As Amanda continues to dig up the truth, she realizes it may cost her everything.

Once you start watching, you won't be able to stop until you know the truth. The question is "can you handle the truth!"
This brief introduction makes the picture may be considered not a perfect thriller according the American gaze. There are many dispersed clues and many involved interests. All of them have a common denominator; the fight for power and domination and the fact of no matter how your weapons are: the betray, adulation corruption double moral. But these variables maintain the dynamic from the power's spheres downstairs and vice versa. Everybody has something to win and loose. Covering their backs according the position in the social pyramid.
The truth is handled as a romantic and devaluated concept in this ideas' order. And that' s the original point game that revaluates this slow paced but fresh thriller.
It will reward you. Highly recommended.
