My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Seemed to drag out. When a child prodigy's piano teacher (Selena) turns up dead in a local marsh, Milo and Alex start investigating Selena's life. The trail conveniently leads to disabled handyman Huck Travis. And the discovery of 3 prostitutes bodies deeper in the marsh does nothing to sway them from their course. Due to being railroaded by the police as a child Huck flees strengthening the case Milo is building against him. But Alex begins to have serious doubts about Huck's involvement and sees him as the perfect patsy.

He chooses to go to the police with the information he finds out about his former client. When Huck is convinced to meet with the police Simone and Weir's plot to kill Simone's family and pin the blame on Huck becomes crystal clear.
