The eclectic mind
9 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the stranger yet a very good Criminal Intent episode as the particular talents of Detective Robert Goren are called into play here. Vincent D'Onofrio was always called on to work on cases that are quirky and after he and Kathryn Erbe arrest Paul Sparks for a brutal killing, it's Captain Jamey Sheridan who recognizes the pattern of a serial killer who stopped operating a dozen years earlier. Or did he?

Sparks definitely has issues, but the CI detectives start looking again even after Sparks is indicted. Only the eclectic mind of Robert Goren figures out the connection between all the female victims who are killed in the same matter. The killer is taunting the cops to find him.

When they do find him it turns out to be Kevin Conway who is a sexual sadist and gives a performance that will chill your soul for days.

I'm also agreeing with the other reviewer who said that he liked the fact that ADA Ron Carver got in the story more than usual. I always liked Courtney B. Vance's work in CI and I wish he had more to do and in this story he has.

But you won't forget Kevin Conway after seeing this episode.
