He's the expert, and she's the eyes and ears stopping a serial killer's murderous rampage. Lincoln Rhyme (Denzel Washington) was the leading expert in criminal forensics until an injury left him paralyzed, depressed and incapable of working. But when a gruesome murder in Manhattan leaves detectives baffled, they call on Rhyme to help solve the mystery. Amelia Donaghy (Angelina Jolie), a street cop whose quick thinking preserves a gruesome murder scene, is enlisted by Rhyme to be his on-the-scene forensics expert. As Donaghy investigates, her wireless connection to Rhyme gives him the eyes and ears to stop the psychopath, before she becomes his next victim.
