Information on Lightning

Adapted from the novel Lightning by Ed McBain.

When a young woman is found dead in a park, the 87th Precinct believes they are investigating an average homicide—until more bodies turn up. After putting together a series of clues—the victims are all top collegiate runners—the department begins their search for a serial killer. Meanwhile, Detective Steve Carella (Randy Quaid) tries to re-establish himself in the dating world and Detective Bert Kling (Alex McArthur) comes to terms with the diminished state of his marriage.

Ed McBain's 87th Precinct: Lightning is the first of three made-for-television movies based on the books in this series for NBC. (The second and third movies feature a different cast.) It originally aired in 1995, runs 88 minutes and is Not Rated. (The movie was previously released on DVD in 1999, packaged together with the 1988 film Whisper Kill.)
