'Winter: The Complete Series' DVD Review

 Detective Sargent Eve Winter (Rebecca Gibney) is tired. She's worn out from the day to day grind of solving murders. The brutality of it all has just become too much for her. So, she moves to a small town in Australia called Mingara. At first the quiet life suits her fine. She has easily resigned herself to a much more simple life. Unfortunately, that doesn't last too long. A girl comes up missing and federal policeman Jake Harris (Matt Nable) asks Winter to join the case.

What's weird is that he's not too forthcoming with information as there is something bigger than just a missing girl. It seems the corpses of five dead women have been found and it seems the missing young girl may be one of the killers next victims. The investigation takes a turn when one of Eve's ex-boyfriends Lachlan McKenzie (Peter O'Brien) is involved in a similar case that may overlap this one. McKenzie convinces Eve to join cases and look for who is killing the women. Eve in the beginning could have very easily walked away from the investigation but when McKenzie comes into the picture her attitude changes, but she really wants to go back to that quiet life.

Acorn brings this mystery crime drama to DVD on October 4th, 2016. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are spectacular. This is entertainment at its best and it will make a wonderful addition to that personal library. Something else you might want to consider is this will make a great Christmas gift for that crime drama aficionado in your family. Either way you can't lose and you know nothing says you can't pick up more than one copy..

Eve Winter has done her job many times over. She simply wanted to get away from the brutality of murder and murder investigations. She travels far but her true self be true. She is a detective and a good one. She stills has the calling to find out the answers and bring the murderer or murderers to justice.
