Our Score
A sinister plastic surgeon and a long-closed murder case lie at the heart of this convoluted but surprisingly effective thriller from the pen of Mary Higgins Clark. Attorney Meredith Baxter's pursuit of the "Sweetheart Killer" isn't without its clichés, however, as she falls headlong for her sidekick, Victor Garber, and risks her boss's political future by delving into the trial on which his reputation is based. But the doppelganger aspect of the plot is decidedly creepy, as are Baxter's nightmares. With stalwart support from Nick Mancuso and Tony LoBianco, there's more to director Bill Corcoran's TV movie than meets the eye.


An encounter in a plastic surgeon's waiting room gives a lawyer reason to suspect the victim in a 10-year-old murder case is actually alive and well. Curious and concerned, she decides to delve deeper and reopens the investigation - but quickly realises she has put herself in the line of fire. Mystery adapted from a tale by Mary Higgins Clark, with Meredith Baxter, Victor Garber, Tony Lo Bianco and Sophie Lang. Edited for violence.
