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.

Wonderful cast, Writing a bit weak.
1 July 2018 | by celtic-58112See all my reviews

I won't pretend to be cutesy like some reviewers. I am just a viewer who likes the show. I love the entire cast, and while the story lines are often improbable (What new plot is left to portray in crime dramas? Nada) I enjoy the interaction of the characters, and the way they are portrayed. Frankly I am sick and tired of seeing gay people played as mincing queens by being wannabe Divine's. Cumming's and Ing's relationship comes across as genuine and caring, and with affection. I'm straight & have three gay nephews, two with husbands, and I am tired of seeing their lifestyle trivialized by writers and directors who think Modern Family (I hate the show) is the model. Maybe that I am so happy to see a non-exploitative portrayal I look past the writing weaknesses. But I will continue to watch the series and hope the writers/directors do better.
