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.

Thank goodness "Raines" creator Graham Yost ("Boomtown") cast Goldblum as a damaged cop who sees and carries on conversations with the hallucinations of the murder victims whose deaths he's tasked with investigating.
