Steve Sohmer wrote last season's lurid miniseries Favorite Son. He's back with this tale charting deep, and equally lurid, waters. Jaclyn Smith is a Chicago cop who returns to the sleepy Arkansas town she left 20 years earlier. She is there, as the title suggests, to get even with the man who brutally raped her. Once home, she also finds out the rapist may have also raped and killed three women. There are lots of none-too-subtle clues about who the killer is. But Smith turns in a nice performance.
