While Fatal Error starts slowly, the pace picks up halfway through and leads to a very satisfying conclusion. This cautionary tale reminds us how easy it is for any deviant mind to make their way into your lives. Be prepared to be chilled!
Although it’s late in life for Ali Reynolds to be switching careers, she is determined. During her six- week training for the Arizona Police Academy, she’s approached by a former colleague. Brenda had been involved with a man named Richard who was ready to propose, until he broke up with her for no reason. On top of that, Ali finds out Brenda had never even met Richard and the relationship had been purely online and over the phone. When Richard turns up dead, Ali is determined to stop a killer.
