Det. Mac Taylor, a dedicated and driven crime-scene investigator who believes that everything is connected and everyone has a story, is a decorated Marine who served in Desert Storm and dabbled in war photography. The job is his life; he focuses on cases until they are solved. With the departure of his partner Det. Stella Bonasera, Mac is introduced to former FBI Forensic Investigator Josephine ‘Jo’ Danville who joins his team bringing a new energy radiating the kind of humanity that invites you to be completely open with her.
The team includes Danny Messer, an investigator with an unflappable spirit and a troubled family history, which he uses on the job as he blends his own set of hybrid ethics. Messer was personally selected to join the team by Mac, and he attempts daily to live up to that honor and responsibility. Sheldon Hawkes is the crime lab’s former coroner, a brilliant Ph.D. who recently made the transition to the field team. Joining them is Don Flack, an edgy, hardcore homicide detective with a quick wit, impressive forensic insight and a long family history in law enforcement. Rounding out the team is Lindsay Monroe, a Montana native with intelligence, perseverance and a secret past.
