Review | Bond of Silence

Us Rating: *** 1/2

Airs: Monday 8/23

Spread the word: This fact-based TV movie is riveting. After her husband is murdered while checking on a neighborhood kid's wild party, devastated Katy (an excellent Kim Raver) pushes to find the culprit. Not easy, considering the youth involved -- a low-key cutie (Haley Ramm), her insecure boyfriend (Charlie McDermott), et al -- aren't talking. In tense and grippingly performed fashion, their pact unravels, leading to an outcome that's devastating on several levels. (Lifetime, 9 P.M.)
