Alicia has been a good wife to her husband, a former state attorney. After a very humiliating sex and corruption scandal, he is behind bars. She must now provide for her family and returns to work as a litigator in a law firm.
Det. Supt. Peter Boyd (played by Trevor Eve) is the leader of a multi-discipline police team of detectives and scientists, the Cold Case Squad, which investigates old, unsolved murder cases using modern methods and new technology that may not have been available during the original investigation.
After a serial killer imitates the plots of his novels, successful mystery novelist Richard "Rick" Castle gets permission from the Mayor of New York City to tag along with an NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes.

Spiral is/was a wonderful show. It is such a shame though that it was over so soon, considering how consistently good it was it deserved much longer. Regardless, Spiral is still must-see television. The production values are superb, with great photography and lighting that brings a genuine atmosphere.
I loved the series' dark and gritty tone, and as it progressed the grittiness and darkness increased to levels where Spiral became "miss it at your own risk" quality. The stories were always hugely compelling, the writing was outstanding, being intelligent and thoughtful with few badly written clichés in sight, and Spiral also had characters that you cared for and I think the acting, which was consistently excellent and continued to get better, helped hugely here.
Overall, Spiral is a truly wonderful show/series and one of the highlights on TV when it aired. 10/10 Bethany Cox
