Two years later he accepts to find Richard 'Ricky' Edmunds for his pa, influential rich businessman Stephen Edmonds. Ricky for a private Canadian war victims charity in Bosnia and went missing. Dexter discovers Ricky was beaten to pulp and drowned for no other crime then helping street boys from the other side by Zoran Zilic and his Serbian paramilitary 'order'. He offers Steven to 'finish the job' as such war criminals don't go to trial. But deputy CIA director Paul Devereaux cares only for a nuclear arms project he wants to use Zilic for.

Great T.V. Movie
17 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoy Sam Elliott's acting. This was a treat to see him back in action. I only hope there will be more from this author. We can't escape the reality of what is happening in the world today. It is true that some may not want to see a movie of this nature at a time like this, but it is only a movie. It is nice to believe that there is someone out there who believes in justice and can get it. What a relief to know that someone still has principles and can act on their moral beliefs even if they violate the law to some degree. Life is full of those types of decisions and it is helpful to have someone, even in a movie act those out for you. One reason I enjoy movies like this is to put myself in that place and live it vicariously. I am sure there are others that do the same thing.
