Based on the British crime drama of the same name, 'Touching Evil' centres around David Creegan, a detective returning to work after surviving a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head. Creegan is a man on the edge with a flair for understanding the criminal mind but also has a tendency to bend the rules when it suits him. When he is assigned to the Organized and Serial Crime Unit of the FBI, he is partnered with no-nonsense Susan Branca, who is determined to do things by the book. Although the two clash on many occasions, they are determined to work together to bring down the psychopaths who torment the streets of their city. Written by Melissa J

I really liked this show. I don't know why they cancelled it but I wish they would at least put the first season on DVD so that I can watch it.It was nice to finally see a cop character who wasn't dirty in any way and could be counted on for some outrageous comment that would make me laugh. Not only was it funny and always surprising but the lack of fear that Creegan had for just jumping into something made me want to watch. I never knew what would happen next and that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout all the shown episodes. As I said before I was very unhappy that they cancelled the show. I just want to know what happened to the characters and whether Creegan ever got back together with his family in some way.
