Storyline

In the Philadelphia police department, Emmett Young is a hotshot, a workaholic newly promoted to homicide. He learns he has a disease that will soon kill him painfully, so he hires a stranger to arrange his own death. With one eye on the calendar (he's allowed a few days' grace before his murder), he pursues a final case, the serial killing of young women. Emmett develops a profile of the assailant. Meanwhile, his fixer hires an ex-cop to kill Emmett, a lonely security guard whom the fixer taunts and belittles. In this limited time, can Emmett sort out what's important?

Great Mystery
23 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Scott Wolf,(Emmett Young) gave an outstanding performance as a young detective who just starts on the police force and is an eager beaver to achieve his goal as an FBI agent in the future. However, Emmett is given some medical advice from this physician that greatly upsets him and throws him completely out of focus. His girlfriend, Sarah,(Sarah Clarke), "24" Nina Myers,'04 TV series, decides to leave him because he never spends any time with her and pays her very little attention. Despite all these personal problems, he has his mind set on a string of female killings and will stop at nothing in order to attempt to capture this serial killer. There is plenty of twists and turns in this mystery and it will keep you guessing just who the killer or killers are. Almost forgot, Khandi Alexander,(Detective Middlestat),CSI TV Series, was very hot and sexy looking as a forensic specialist/Detective.
