FBI Special Agent Jamie Pratt is working on a case involving a serial killer. They've found series of murders - some as far back as 30 years ago - where the victims were all killed with the same gun. They seem to have one victim per year over those 30 years and the murders are spread across the country. They can find no connection between the victims however. They get a break when recently declassified information shows that the gun used in all the murders was manufactured only a few years before and issued to a Dr. Theresa Givens at the National Security Agency. It makes no sense and no one can figure out how a recent gun could have been used in a murder 30 years ago. Givens left the NSA six months ago after her project was canceled and is now a university professor. Finding out the nature of that canceled project will give them the answers they seek.

Solid storyline, excellent performances
16 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Amanda Plummer fully deserves her Emmy Award for her portrayal of Dr. Theresa Givens. Michelle Forbes as FBI agent Jamie Pratt also gives a great performance. The writing and storyline is excellent. But an excellent story still requires strong performances to bring it all together. And for this show it certainly was there. Gripping from start to finish. No plastic looking aliens who can speak English here. Just a captivating story with an outstanding performance by Amanda Plummer. This story will keep you thinking even after the credits roll. I can't help but feel that some of the more recent movies (eg. Butterfly Effect seemed to have borrowed heavily from here.) Even if you are not into sci-fi, watch it for the strong storyline and amazing performances! You will not regret it.
