Storyline

The Carr Family is a well known family of cops, for three generations now. Now the current generation of cops are investigating a serial killer who murders his victims all differently so they can't trace them all back to him. Yet the murder starts sending Tom Carr, at the police station, videos with him, the serial killer, on it. If that wasn't bad enough. Tom and his wife Helen have to care for their nephew, Matt, when his mom is killed and his dad is hospitalized one night after a shooting at a near convince store. The killer starts to get personal now and attacks the Carr family, by kidnapping and threatening to kill Matt. What will the Carr family do in this time of Crisis? Will Matt be saved in enough time or be the next victim to the killer? Written by Princessmaniac1

Great Mini-Series
24 February 1999 | by (MI) – See all my reviews

The dramatic Craig T. Nelson makes another wonderful dramatic lead character. This Mini-Series is one of the best I have ever seen. Nelson proves he can do comedy with "Coach" and Drama with "To Serve and Protect". Outstanding support characters and wonderful writing makes it a not-to-miss mini-series.
