Really interesting episode!
19 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I watched this episode because I heard it was based on the Night Listener/Anthony Godby Johnson story, about a sick teen who overcame a childhood of abuse and wrote a memoir based on this, becoming very popular yet never meeting anybody. As it was adapted to fit the "Criminal Intent" story lines, a murder was added to the story - a donor to the fund of the sick child who had been hoping to finally meet with the child (who in this story was a girl named Erika). It doesn't take the team long to ask the question - does Erika actually exist? People become polarised into "believers" and "non-believers", hence the concept of "faith". And how far do people go to defend their faith?

This is one awesome idea for a story, and it was pretty cool how everything played out. To add to the amazing story and the show brought in a lot of interesting characters. And, the detectives and the regular cast are very good too. A slight twist was able to be introduced towards the end. It was all very clever and really gripping viewing. I highly recommend this episode particularly if you enjoyed the "Night Listener" book (or recent film).
