In all things in the universe there are
two primal opposing but complementary forces, whether ying
yang, evil good, day night and others. For Maxwell Sterling
his genetic anomaly sends him in search of his counter balance
and he found it in the form of Olivia Watts.
Olivia Watts is a single mother who is
struggling to pay her bills without any help from her deadbeat
ex-husband who refuses to pay support. As if she does not have
enough on her plate, she has a charismatic millionaire
pursuing her, she is receiving threatening phone calls, and
has jealous coworkers making snide remarks and to top it all
someone is trying to kill her.
The Devil's Plaything was
well written and plotted story but had holes in it. What was
supposed to be a culmination of events leading to a surprise
unfolding of the villain was obvious from the start. It had a
strong storyline but at the end, it fell into a predictable
pattern. Might have disappointed me at the end but there was
never a boring moment, from near miss accidents, crank calls,
to paparazzi, it was none stop accumulation of events.
