This two-hour movie is a potential series. Don't bet on it. Eric Roberts plays a New Orleans detective with a tangled past on the trail of a serial killer who has it in for adulterous wives. Fine as far as it goes, but too much time is wasted on Anne Rice atmospherics—mossy tombstones, religious morbidity and the like. Roberts, who insists on addressing everyone as "brothah," is more subdued here than usual.
