Special Skills:

Thomas Craven is a 40-50 year old slender police detective who is an honest cop, very Serpico-like. He just witnessed his daughter being murdered on the front porch of his house and is now investigating who might have been behind it, leading to a darker conspiracy of corporate intrigue, nuclear weapon development, and a known cover-up. He is met by a CIA "fixer" named Jedburgh who is playing both sides of the men who hired him to eliminate anyone who talks to Craven and to keep tabs on Craven himself, and Craven by giving him limited information behind the who and why (mainly, the why) behind Craven's daughter's death. As Craven finds out more and more about his daughter's murder, his limits are put to the test as he nears closer and closer to the edge of darkness...
