Review

Our Score
A whirlwind romance leads to disturbing discoveries in this contrived but watchable thriller. Sarah Lancaster stars as the lowly personal assistant whose ultra-swift marriage to software billionaire Mark Humphrey quickly tarnishes when she starts snooping into the fate of his late former wife. Though all her poking around is rather far-fetched and visually undynamic, a sinister soundtrack and enjoyably deceptive supporting performances create an atmosphere of intrigue and unease. Humphrey is particularly good as Lancaster's success-obsessed hubby, mixing charm with a dash of creepiness that keeps his part in the deadly events uncertain throughout. Consequently, there are a few surprises in the twisting finale, even if their execution is underwhelming.

Summary

A woman marries a widowed billionaire after a whirlwind romance, but is shocked to learn his first wife was murdered by kidnappers and that she will have to learn to live with elaborate security measures as a result. However, the more she gets to know her husband, the more she begins to suspect he is concealing the truth about her predecessor's fate. Thriller, with Sarah Lancaster and Mark Humphrey.
