The thrilling work of #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Cornwell made its on-screen debut in the Lifetime Original Movies.
At Risk introduces Win Garano, the rising star of the Massachusetts State Police, who Monique "Money" Lamont - the ambitious and brazen Boston district attorney - sends to Tennessee to investigate a murder that took place more than 20 years before. Monique hopes the case will showcase her new crime initiative and propel her to the top. In the fast-paced sequel, The Front, Monique and Win reunite to investigate Boston's most famous criminal. Attempting to generate much needed publicity for her flagging political aspirations, Monique orders Win to re-open the investigation of the brutal, decades-old murder of a young blind woman. They soon learn that the crimes of the past aren't very different from the crimes of today.

Reviews were mixed. David Hinckley, in the Daily News, wrote "This Lifetime adaptation of Patricia Cornwell's thriller “At Risk” is smarter and better than the average TV movie." while April MacIntyre in Monsters and Critics criticised inconsistencies in the plot; she said “In this day and age of empty coffers it is a stretch at best to think Massachusetts' tax payer funds would be earmarked to solve a Tennessee cold case murder. Another annoyance for me, as an ex resident of Essex county, is the confusion of county names. Boston is Suffolk county. Why that detail was cocked up is beyond me.” and according to Laura Fries in Variety, the film “has a talented cast and polished tech credits, but they just don’t yield much of a movie”.
