"Enchanting relationship crime drama"
In Plymouth Harbor, Massachusetts, Cassandra Sipton belongs
to a Wiccan with four other women. Cass sells Earthline
Herbal Preparations and Cruelty Free Cosmetics while living
with her dog Scruffy. One day while shopping at the
supermarket, her cart crashes into that of a guy with a
green cap on. Seeing a vision of a dead boy, she senses an
evil essence inside of the smiling Green Cap.
Cass tells her four friends what she felt and they conduct
a sťance in which they shock themselves and make contact.
While walking with Scruffy in nearby Jenkins Woods, the
canine finds a child's key chain with a name on it of that
of a boy who vanished without a trace. Cass and her Wiccan
friends believe the Green Cap is the serial killer of that
child and must be stopped even if it means risking their
lives by using their tyro level powers.
CIRCLE OF FIVE is figuratively and literally an enchanting
relationship crime drama. The magical story line grips the
audience from the beginning when the truck driver kills the
little boy while whistling a tune from Gypsy. The five
women especially Cass are a delightful quintet struggling
with their new powers (sort of like the Greatest American
Hero) and the impact that has on their friendships. They
work through all this while teaming up to try to capture a
killer with no one to help them. Dolores Stewart Riccio
provides fans with a bewitching tale and the audience will
return to see what happens next in CHARMED CIRCLE.
