  • John can out live his family and friends but not his descendants.

    Whilst investigating a homicide in China town John has a shocking flashback when the body of the murder victim looks remarkable similar to a son he raised during the 1900's.

    As John and Eva investigate it comes to light that the shooting is part of a gang turf war with a local Mafia type family and Triad type family and John Amsterdam is a descendant to the Mafia crime family.

    Through a series of flashbacks the year is 1913 and John is an up and coming painter, most of his work is brilliant then he suddenly loses his 'edge' and his wife and son want him to move and start a new life somewhere else, John feels he can get his creative skills back and finds a new model to pose for him, which he starts an affair with, his son Roosevelt catches him and run's off.

    Fast forward to the present and we learn that Roosevelt is the great great grandfather of the dead victim Alex Spoor and it's Johns job to track down the killer and put his own ghosts to rest.

    The series is moving along great and it's still not certain Dr Dillane is John's 'one', the storylines are brilliantly written and never dull and it's a show you never get tired of watching.
