Storyline

Former CIA operative is lured back to his old life when the NYPD needs his help to stop a serial killer. Dr. Dylan Reinhart (Alan Cumming) is a gifted author and university professor living a quiet life teaching psychopathic behavior to packed classes of adoring students. But when top NYPD detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) appeals to him to help her catch a serial murderer who is using Dylan's first book as a tutorial, Dylan is compelled by the case, comes out of retirement and taps into his old skill set. Though Dylan and Lizzie initially clash, when it comes to catching killers, they realize they will make an ideal team if they both trust their instincts. Based on the James Patterson book.

Horrible detective show - and generally I love good ones
2 April 2018 | by junkchicSee all my reviews

Alan Cumming is so talented that I don't know how he agreed to such poor scripts/plots, and acting alongside the pretty Bojana Novakovic who can't act is a poor reflection on him. The worst part is not even the acting but the plots are so obvious and there are no twists and suspense. Makes this a dud show. I tried to watch it for three episodes and I am done. None of the Side characters weekly are good at acting which makes the casting horrible. Not even convincing or believable. I am a big fan of all the BBC crime shows and they have good acting, even CBS Elementary and CBS Blue Bloods ain't so bad as a more recent new comers.

But this show is waste of time. I like Alan Cumming so much that I tried to give it three chances, and this is their final chance. I'm signing off this show permanently. I hope viewers jump back to watch CBS Elementary as it's a much better written and acting than this crime show.
