When the body of Army Capt. Elisabeth Campbell is found on a Georgia military base, two investigators, Warrant Officers Paul Brenner and Sara Sunhill, are ordered to solve her murder. What they uncover is anything but clear-cut. Unseemly details emerge about Campbell's life, leading to allegations of a possible military coverup of her death and the involvement of her father, Lt. Gen. Joseph Campbell.

Not the strongest mystery-drama-thriller but serviceable if not also pretty heavy in a few scenes dealing with a woman's brutal sexual assault. Travolta gives a fine performance as does the reliable James Cromwell, not to mention James Woods and Madeline Stowe. This is probably my third time viewing, first in a long while, but still found it engaging as well as really sad. **3.75/5**
