Brenda's team investigates the death of a young mother and her 4-year-old daughter, found bound together and weighted down in the Port of Los Angeles. The coroner estimates they've been in the water for at least two weeks, which coincides with the dates on a Japanese airline ticket found on the woman's body. They track down the woman's husband, Paul Andrews, a seemingly sincere and decent man running an auto body repair shop in L.A., who says his wife ran off with their child six months before and hasn't contacted him since. Upon learning he had a first wife who also suddenly disappeared six years earlier convinces Brenda he is responsible but leaves her desperate for hard evidence for an arrest.

Great Roles
5 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently started watching this series on DVD. I suppose in part it's the basic format, the interrogation, the back and forth between Brenda and her interviewee, but this series seems to give actors great scenes.

The writing is probably good as well, but in a number of past episodes I've seen actors really knock it out of the ballpark in their scenes. In this one, we have an actor who've I've seen in a few other series, such as THRESHOLD. Here he plays the husband of a missing woman and child.

As Brenda's squad scrambles to find evidence of whatever happened, Brenda and the actor play out a day in the interrogation room. The woman and child were murdered. Did the husband do it or is he a grieving innocent.

Up until the last few minutes you won't know. The writing and acting are so good.

I imagine that actors are beating on their agents to get them guest spots on this series in the hope of having such powerful roles.
