An alien visits Earth and casts an evil spell over a poor fisherman who finds her magic book. Since the book makes whoever finds it rich, soon the fisherman finds that several criminals are after him for it.
A one-night stand between two love-averse strangers threatens to disrupt their carefully constructed worlds and sends them on a headlong, spontaneous 4,000-mile journey from Brooklyn to the Grand Canyon and back.
To me this series was absolutely spell binding. It is based on actual events but cleverly disguised as a Police Drama. The story covers a bombing in a city and the subsequent investigation over several episodes. Dramatic licence is there but the program is believable and never over the top. The program used a former police officer arson expert as there technical adviser and as a former member of this police force, the jargon and officer behaviour was terribly accurate. If you are lucky enough to come across a re-run of this series, watch it. It is interesting from the start and the actual forensic science techniques used are true. One last comment, I'm not the bozo forensic chemist, just his assistant.
