Aspiring artists, ranging from a blues singer to a concert pianist, are the target in this serial murder mystery. Protagonist Alex's Delaware's ex-wife just happens to fit this killer's profile, adding a personal twist. John Rubinstein gives psychologist Delaware a hint of raspiness as he works the streets of LA on the trail of identifying this pathological killer. Regular Milo Sturgis is distinctive with a tough-guy voice, and Petra Connor, a female cop fast-tracking her way to promotion, is presented with a slightly higher tone and spirited energy. Eric Stahl, a newcomer to the detective team, brings stark contract with his quiet, unemotional manner. A winning combination of plot and delivery. F.L.F.
