It is funny how often something that worked beautifully in a novel doesn't in a two-parter. I think a book allows a story to unfold more slowly. What seemed thrilling in this book when I read it probably nearly a decade ago seems like a jumble of too-similar plot lines in this production. Two dead girls, two missing girls: how to keep the storylines apart.
Jackson Brodie (Jason Issacs) takes on three cases all dealing with girls. Then, of course, there is his own daughter and girlfriends. Two many women to keep straight. A disappointment and you know what, I think I saw it in 2011 when it came out. It is followed by her other three novels and two original scripts.
