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

Watch for Kristen Lehman's performance alone....
15 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Love this show. Great settings in and around Vancouver and an extremely well produced Canadian show. US love to ignore Canadian productions generally, but this is definitely a winner!

Kristen has some brilliantly-written dialogue...very off-the-cuff-type,,,,,,which makes her character so believable.

In fact, all characters are very well played. Nice to see cop partners who obviously enjoy working together...they are very natural. Also nice to see Warren Christie has joined the cast.

Really enjoying the concept of trying to figure out the 'motive' as opposed to the victim/killer! Would be great to have some 2-parters for a change of pace! Truly hope this series gets the go ahead for a third season.
