Storyline

Michael Raines uses his imagination to "discuss" the case of a murdered young woman with the victim. She was found shot in the back in a parking lot surrounded by cash. Raines soon discovers the woman was a prostitute, but was using her skills to save money to help her mother start a new life. Among the suspects: her possibly abusive father, a private detective she was working with, a man she was possibly having an affair with, (and his wife). Motives might include blackmail, jealousy, greed, or just a random crime.As well as bouncing his ideas off the dead woman, Raines also discusses his ideas with his former partner, who was shot on duty and is no longer with the police force.

Loved this show
15 March 2007 | by bokkie9See all my reviews

This show was so good. It was so cleverly written and Jeff Goldblum was...Jeff Goldblum... just excellent! I would be interested to know how many lines he is ad libbing. I might have to watch this again because there were a couple of lines that 'Raines" said that I might want to use someday. I'm sorry this is debuting against March Madness on CBS. I see that it is being replayed tomorrow, Friday. I hope it gets a good audience. A comment made by someone else was that she thought that this show might be like Medium. Its similar but yet very different. Medium is also a very good show. I am setting this one up to tape the series in case I am out. I don't want to miss it.
