This Saturday, April 10th at 9 PM (ET/PT), Lifetime presents the premiere of its made-for-television movie adaptation of At Risk by Patricia Cornwell. The film stars Andie MacDowell as Massachusetts District Attorney Monique "Money" Lamont and Daniel Sunjata as State Police Investigator Win Garano, who investigate a cold case, an unsolved crime that took place more than 20 years ago.
The characters return the following Saturday in an adaptation of The Front, the second book in the series by Cornwell. We'll have more on that movie next week.
Watch a preview for both films following the synopsis of At Risk below.
About At Risk (from the publisher): A Massachusetts state investigator is called home from Knoxville, Tennessee, where he is completing a course at the National Forensic Academy. His boss, the district attorney, attractive but hard-charging, is planning to run for governor, and as a showcase she's planning to use a new crime initiative called At Risk-its motto: "Any crime, any time." In particular, she's been looking for a way to employ cutting-edge DNA technology, and she thinks she's found the perfect subject in an unsolved twenty-year-old murder-in Tennessee. If her office solves the case, it ought to make them all look pretty good, right?
Her investigator is not so sure-not sure about anything to do with this woman, really-but before he can open his mouth, a shocking piece of violence intervenes, an act that shakes up not only both their lives but the lives of everyone around them. It's not a random event. Is it personal? Is it professional? Whatever it is, the implications are very, very bad indeed ... and they're about to get much worse.
