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.

I'm as sad as the show is!
26 March 2018 | by biffspeaksSee all my reviews

We had great hopes; James Patterson and Alan Cumming. I anticipated something in the vein of True Detective (year one of course). What we took from episode one was a sort of Castle in the making and although we loved Castle, this is not what we expected from the aforementioned duo. This role wastes Cumming's talents as well as Patterson's. We were more taken back by what we were witnessing than we were interested in who the killer was and by the time the killer was revealed we could care less as we just wanted this let down to end. I can't believe we have no interest to watch any further. We hope Cumming quickly puts this behind him and moves on (or back) to better scripts/writing as soon as possible.
