Storyline

Nick Slaughter, an ex-RCMP and DEA agent, who had dropped out of society after being fired from his job, relocates to the Florida town of Key Mariah to start a detective service. In the process he meets Sylvie Gerard, a local travel agent. Together they form a strong partnership and quite the detective team. However, the local police squad never made it easy so they often require help from their friends: Ian, Spider (owners of the Tropical Heat Bar at different times) and Rollie (local police mortician). The Town of Key Mariah will never be the same again thanks to Nick Slaughter and company. Written by Janet Worth <worthy@planeteer.com>

Trivia

In Serbia, the series enjoys a cult status to this day. The main reasons behind this are the UN sanctions against Serbia in the early 1990s (which prevented the airing of major films and TV shows) and the show's setting in tropical abundance (which highly contrasted the everyday poverty in Serbia at the time). In fact, the show was originally aired under the title "Detektiv u raju", meaning "A Detective in Paradise". See more »

Best of the "Crime Time After Prime Time" CBS shows.
20 January 1999 | by gt2002See all my reviews

"Sweating Bullets" is the best of the five "Crime Time After Prime Time" CBS-TV shows which rotated nightly at 11:30 P.M. A pleasing combination of action, beautiful women and sarcastic wit with Rob Stewart the ruggedly handsome--like a Steven Seagal/ Alec Baldwin--cool dude who can really deliver a line; with his clothes blazing in flames, he crashes through a 2nd floor window and lands in a swimming pool, face to face with a gorgeous young woman and says to her, "and I thought I was HOT!"

"Silk Stalkings" and the other 'Crime Time' shows were also good but not as charming.
