Storyline

Former FBI agent Ryan Hardy is brought on board as a consultant when the serial killer he arrested many years before, Joe Carroll, escapes from prison killing several guards in the process. Although Hardy caught him, he paid a heavy price. He was stabbed in the heart and lives courtesy of a pacemaker. He's also on a disability pension. Carroll was an English professor with a fondness for the works of Edgar Allen Poe. Now that he's out, Hardy is certain he will go after Sarah Fuller, his last victim who managed to survive the attack. He's correct but they realize too late that Carroll spent much of his time in prison on the Internet and now has a group of devoted followers who will do as he asks. Written by garykmcd

AMAZING! Hold onto your seats! It's CRAZY GOOD!!!
22 January 2013 | by jmcamueller-589-673709See all my reviews

LOVED this! Literally on the edge of my seat the whole time... I screamed once... LOL There are amazing twists and turns... AMAZING!!! I kept thinking it was a movie because of the non stop action but then realized it will be on EVERY WEEK!!! I would recommend definitely not for a weak stomach as there is a lot of violence and blood but it is AN AMAZING SHOW! It's Taken meets Silence of the Lambs with a little bit of James Patterson... Finally something that can keep you guessing and will have me looking forward to next week already!!!! HURRY UP!! When I heard Kevin Bacon was going to be in it, I set my DVR because he is amazingly talented... I have now watched it and it is a now being recorded for the whole serious as PERMANENT RECORDING FOR SURE!!! AWESOME! It's on FOX... SET YOUR DVRS!!
