Storyline

A stalker tackles three women in London. First 23-year old likable schoolteacher Zoe Haratounian, who beats off a thief and gets declared a local heroine by the press, gets scary anonymous letters, but because she runs off from the police station when the desk officer cheerfully calls her 'our poster girl' to a colleague when recognizing her on a press cutting, it takes days before the police can even send over PC Andrew Stadden, a detective in training. She breaks up with her 'not sensitively supportive' hunky boyfriend, gardener Fred, who even gets investigated as a suspect and only has his soccer mates Maurice 'Moz' 'Hack' Burnside and Jase to fall back on. When she thinks it's over, she gets killed at home. Next Jennifer Hintlesham, who lives in affluence with her husband, businessman Dominic 'Dom', and their sons Josh (13) and Kristo (6), complete with nanny, believes the first letter suggesting Dom is unfaithful, as he once was years ago, then rips open her fingers on a razor ...

An underrated, excellent mini-series.
1 October 2010 | by puppetwomanoftaviraSee all my reviews

I remember this cheering up some dark Sunday nights a few years back. I expected nothing much, but in return found it entertaining, engaging and surprising, and I ended up in a bleak, dark mood; just right for returning to another working week. The acting was brilliant and realistic,the plot was credible: I totally recommend this mini-series. One surprise is that I have just found out it was from a book written by Nicci French, an author recommended to me by my Dutch husband. I have just found a whole row of her books on his bookshelf; all of which have been translated into Dutch. I really do have to now buy and read the English versions.
