He took you behind the doors of a New Orleans luxury resort and shared the shocking secrets of its guests in Hotel. He jolted readers with suspense during the perils of one terrifying crisis in Airport. With over 150 million copies of his novels in print, bestselling author Arthur Hailey is a master storyteller. Now, a new Hailey bestseller comes to television as a gripping miniseries exploring the complex bond between a convicted killer and the man who put him away.
Detective Sergeant Malcolm Ainslie (Golden Globe winner Tom Berenger, Platoon),a Catholic priest turned distinguished homicide investigator for the
Miami police, has been summoned to hear the confession of Elroy Doil.
The convicted serial killer - who Ainslie himself was responsible for
catching, is scheduled to be executed the following morning. Suspected
of the string of murders but convicted on only one count, Doil wants to
come clean and reveal everything he knows. Ainslie can't refuse - the
crimes, committed four years before, still sear his memory. The victims
: the elderly. The deaths: barbaric. The killer: a self-proclaimed
avenger of God. But Doil's motives are more troubling, and more baffling
than just that - for his own scars cut deep. So does the whole unknown
story of the crimes that Doil has promised to reveal to Ainslie.
What unfolds between the two men is a serpentine trail into both their
pasts - one that questions everything they think they know about each other,
about crime and punishment, about truth and justice. Detective features
an acclaimed cast that includes Annabeth Gish (The X-Files), Wanda De Jesus
(CSI: Miami), Frank Whaley (Pulp Fiction), Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5),
and Golden Globe winners Charles Durning and Cybill Shepherd (Cybill).
Combine masterful storytelling and edge-of-your-seat suspense with an
ending that'll surprise even the most seasoned armchair detective, and
you get a gutsy, inside thriller of law, order, retribution, and revenge.
