TV show description:
This crime drama has a unique twist in that it doesn’t focus on who committed a crime, but why the crime was committed in the first place. As the mystery unfolds, winding between revealing flashbacks and present time, viewers navigate the twisted and complicated maze of each murder, solving the puzzle alongside the detectives, piecing together more of the mysterious connections that drove the killer to commit murder.

When a murder is committed, Detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira) are on the case, looking for clues that will lead them to the killer.

Sexy and feisty, Angie is a thirty-something single mom from the wrong side of the tracks who proves that appearances can be deceiving. Oscar is intelligent, thoughtful, methodical and confident. He comes from a wealthy family and turned his back on an expensive Harvard Divinity School education to join the police force (a change of heart from his initial choice of joining the priesthood).

Others on the homicide team are: Doctor Betty Rogers (Lauren Holly), a medical examiner with a quirky sense of humor that belies the grimness of her daily job. Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom (Roger Cross), the Squad Room Supervisor who was sidelined from the streets a few years earlier by a bullet. Detective Brian Lucas (Brendan Penny), a young eager beaver detective and newlywed who’s eager to learn and is fascinated about the often grisly procedures.

Angie doesn’t suffer fools or authority figures lightly. At home, Angie only wants the best for her teenage son, Manny (Cameron Bright), who is one of the few things in life that she feels she did right. But as far as Manny’s concerned, being the son of a cop is not the easiest gig in the world.

Please do not cancel this show. It is a refreshing change to know who the victim is and who the murderer is and how they get to this.

Please renew this series!!!!! It’s a great show, and SO much better than some of the crud on the air. But tell me this; where is it? I’ve been searching the tv guide and it’s nowhere to be found.

the cop louis i think is his name…get rid of the beard…don’t need to be a stallone look alike…you are trying too hard. look like a clean cop, not an undercover one.


Cheryl May 31, 2013 at 11:31 am

Like the concept of the show. The guy with the beard (Louis ?) looks really scuzzy!!! Don’t like him the way he plays his part.


Pat May 31, 2013 at 1:06 am

love the series.. hope its coming back.. like the idea of why a murder was committed?


Alabama Jim May 26, 2013 at 9:52 pm

I won’t watch it anymore , because the over riding droning music drowns out the actors dialog .
