'Tells how faith can be abused by the "faithful"
14 January 2010 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

A man who has desecrated a Jewish holy book is found murdered outside a synagogue and Detectives Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) are called in to investigate the crime. As the process continues, it is revealed that one of the temple's members (Zech Grenier), a family man and devout Jew, is guilty. However, the catalyst for the crime is the man's cousin (Mark Fuerstein) who holds deep-seated resentment against his family and his religion. Plus, the revered book holds a dark secret that has been kept quiet by the rabbi (Alan Miller).

Of the guest performers Grenier stands out as a man that commits a heinous crime but feels that his murderous act is justified due to the "history" of the book.

Great dialog exchanges also occur between Grenier and ADA McCoy (Sam Waterston) as well as between McCoy and DA Arthur Branch (Fred Dalton Thompson).
