Hard­cover Mys­ter­ies

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Satur­day, 9.30pm, CI The crimes in this eight-episode se­ries are com­pelling. Fans of the true crime genre may find added value in hav­ing fa­mous ex­po­nents such as David Bal­dacci, Har­lan Coben and Kathy Re­ichs com­ment on pro­ceed­ings. In tonight’s de­but, an at­trac­tive Wash­ing­ton so­cialite with ties to Jack Kennedy is gunned down in the city’s ex­clu­sive Ge­orge­town dis­trict in Oc­to­ber 1964. Bal­dacci says the case is as sen­sa­tional as any best­seller, a bizarre mix of sex, pol­i­tics, se­crets and murder. A stylish re-en­act­ment fol­lows in which we see a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the woman dragged off into the woods dur­ing a leisurely stroll by one of the area’s tow­path canals. She is shot in the head at close range in cold blood. Was it a sense­less murder or a gov­ern­ment plot to not fur­ther di­min­ish the mem­ory of the no­to­ri­ously randy, re­cently as­sas­si­nated pres­i­dent? of Robin­son as a sort of hon­orary Aus­tralian. He does love the place more than I love him, that’s for sure. This whirl­wind Aussie cav­al­cade in­cludes 10 towns and cities in 10 episodes. Things be­gin tonight in Fremantle be­fore our man heads off in weeks to come to Mel­bourne, Ho­bart, Bendigo, New­cas­tle, Carl­ton, Bris­bane, St Kilda, Wool­loomooloo and Ade­laide.
