THe plot is a bit hard to believe, but the show still is quite interesting.
8 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with a woman (Vera Miles) being tormented by men in a parking garage. It appears they are going to kill her and then they just walk away--quite inexplicably. Who were they and why were they doing this to her? Her boss, the head of a pharmaceutical company, is worried for her safety and hires Cannon. However, the attacks continue and still she has no idea who they are or why this is occurring. Eventually, after scaring the pants off her repeatedly, they divulge why they are doing this. They want a 'friend' of theirs included in a drug study being conducted in prison. But, naturally, there's much more to it than this!

The show is not without its faults (such as the woman repeatedly not confiding in Cannon--a man hired to save her). But, the plot, though hard to believe, is quite nice because it's so unusual. Well worth seeing.
