The true story of John Hawkins, a notoriously elusive criminal profiled on John Walsh's television show 'Americas's Most Wanted'. Hawkin was a sociopathic con man and murderer, who used sex in his scams and had the charm and good looks to do so. After a $1 million insurance settlement on a business partner's death, he disappeared, leading the California detective who pursued him on a wild chase all over the world. Written by

This made for tv movie is a strange one, because it continually veers between the very klunky and the very cool. Klunky are the police investigation and especially the insertion of an ego tripping John Walsh (don't quit your day job, John) who obviously isn't playing anyone but his already wooden self. And David Keith as a police detective is asking _him_ for help? However, then there is the part of the movie that focuses on the villain of the piece, Anthony Sabbato Jr. as John Hawkins, the bi-sexual scam artist with the great charm and killer looks. Now this is where the story comes into it's own. Sabbato is great as the guy who can have any woman he wants and does, and can break any law with impunity. Having an absolute blast as his gay partners in crime are Bradley Dourif as Hawkins' lover and business manager and Maury Chaikin as the pill popping, patient zapping dr. Richard Boggs. So, what to make of this movie as a viewing experience? If you're paying for it and looking for a police procedural or serial killer movie, you might be disappointed, but if it's on tv and you can tape it, you pretty much can't lose.
