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.
Raines finds himself put in an awkward position, when his estranged ex-wife Sarah asks for his help in investigating the crash of a plane carrying her new husband. She believes that the tragedy was no accident. Raines is skeptical at first, but he is eventually convinced that something isn't right.
