Los Angeles. Present day. Michael Raines, an eccentric but brilliant cop, solves murders in a very unusual way – he turns the victims into his partners. These visions are figments of Raines`s imagination, and he knows it, but when he can`t make the dead disappear, he works with them to find the killer. He talks to them. He profiles them. And he`s only free of them when the case is closed. Other detectives question Raines`s sanity. So does he, but he is unable to stop the visions from coming, and a small part of him is glad he can`t. That`s because there is one recurring hallucination he can`t live without.
