Haunting, unforgettable television!
10 July 1999 | by redletSee all my reviews

Starting with the theme song - sung by Johnny Rivers - this was a suspenseful, engrossing show about a man with amnesia. Frank Converse was exciting and SO sexy!! We were heartbroken when it wasn't picked up and the story continued.
