Unfortunately, Sally's not painted to be the brightest, and tends to spend most of her time pouting and looking pained. But, good way to pass the time.

I loved this!!! I intend to buy it! Julie Walters (Ronald Weasley's Mom in Harry Potter) plays an excellent villian in this! - Really a good story line, interesting thriller/mystery with excellent acting.
