This guy looks surprisingly healthy for a dead man.
15 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This show begins with a car being stolen. Unexpectedly, in the course of investigating this crime, an odd set of fingerprints are found in the car--those of an enemy agent who is supposed to have been dead for a decade! Obviously the man is alive--but where and what are his intentions? Eventually, Drake is able to find this supposedly dead man. However, it seems unlikely he's still an agent. But, the story isn't that simple--there's a lot more to it than that.

The show has a few nice twists and an interesting plot. Plus, I was thrilled to see the character actor, Finlay Currie, in the show. Sure, the part was small, but I'd watch Currie in anything! Worth seeing.
