Storyline

A Vancouver based murder has just occurred and been discovered. At the beginning of each episode, not only is the victim(s) identified to the viewer, but also the killer(s). The disparate group of Vancouver Homicide detectives, with help from the Coroner's office, have to wade through the evidence which will lead them through the more often than not less than straightforward path to discovering the killer(s) and his/her/their motive. That motive often is not fully understood by the detectives until they catch the killer(s). One of those detectives, quick witted and acerbic tongued Angie Flynn, often has the competing priority of raising her son, Manny, as a single mother. Written by Huggo

Good Show
5 April 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is my first review... i usually don't write reviews.. but i am writing this coz this show is greatly underrated.. This one's not like other cop shows,,,thats for sure... but that doesn't mean that its bad... i reaally liked the first 2 episodes...rather than keeping the killer as a secret they show the killer in advance and how the police connect the case with the suspect... i definitely loved it.. and both the lead detectives are smart... its smart how they connect each case to the victim... if u are a fan of police procedural dramas like castle, mentalist and such this is the show for u... but if u r a fan of dramas like CSI,,this one's not for u...
