Sins Of The Father
1 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think it's always a nice touch, and very intriguing one, when halfway through a case the good guys (here, meaning Det. Robert Goren and Det. Alex Eames) figure that they've got the wrong guy, and they've got to continue to search for the real killer.

That's what happens here, although the wrong suspect and the right wrong are.....well, linked about as closely as you could ever ask.

I was glad to see Courtney B. Vance get some air time, showing "A.D.A. Ron Carver" at work at a Grand Jury hearing, doing his stuff. I've always found him interesting and his role is usually not very big. Here, here gets more time and doesn't disappoint.

Paul Sparks is riveting as the "Keith Durbin" but veteran actor Kevin Conway steals the show as his dad, "Frank McNare." This is another bizarre and fascinating story.
