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.

This should have been so much better
21 March 2018 | by linabarattinSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to this and found it very disappointing. With Alan Cumming I was expecting something smart, intelligent and witty. Instead it is full of predictable formulae, an inappropriate, unbelievable in the part, female lead and cliches that I have seen hundreds of times in hundreds of network programs exactly like this. Instead of a really cool new series, it's the usual American drek.
