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.

Alan Cumming can't save this
10 April 2018 | by gigi-563-652435See all my reviews

This could have been amazing if it was written by a writer as good as those on The Good Wife. That, and if they'd hired an actress as lead who can actually act. She is painfully awful. I don't ever review things, but she drove me to it with tonight's episode. In addition, it's another show where the "ace detective" is approximately 25-26 years old, which I find ridiculous. There's not even any "veteran" officers in her department, and the captain is damn young, too. All of that would have been easy to dismiss if the show weren't written so poorly, and had used Alan Cumming in a way that best showcases his talent. This puerile nonsense is breathtakingly awful, and she gets worse and more wooden by the episode.
