Originally made for the Showtime cable network, this fast-paced thriller allows viewers a look into the sometimes dangerous world of two United States Postal Inspectors as they try to find the culprit behind a mail bombing. The two inspectors couldn't be more different. Frank Hughes (Louis Gossett Jr.) has been at the job for years and is an ace crime solver with his own way of doing things. His partner, Alex Urbina (Jonathan Silverman), is fresh out of Harvard and knows all of the latest crime-solving techniques. Both of their skills are tested when they are assigned to locate the person responsible for the mail bomb that left a Baltimore man dead and his wife in critical condition. The prime suspect is the couple's son Drew Carrigan, but they soon found out he was meant to be the victim. Drew points out his own suspects, but they turn out to be in prison, leaving the detectives with plenty of questions and very few clues.
