The Glimmer Man


1h 32m 1996

Brief Synopsis

In the jungles of the Third World, his unsuspecting targets would hear nothing. They'd sense nothing. And they'd see only a glimmer before it was too late--he would strike and be gone. His shadowy government superiors called him the Glimmer Man, and they dispatched him on the riskiest, most sensitive covert assignments in which the United States was never officially involved. Now, as detective Jack Cole, he has abandoned his former occupation and identity. When a serial murderer with a macabre, ritualistic style plunges the families of Los Angeles into terror, the L.A.P.D. are forced to summon the one man whose instinct and understanding of the criminal mind are unrivaled: Jack Cole from New York. This time, in the urban jungle of Los Angeles, Cole is not the killer hunting prey, but the hunter seeking a killer. The iconoclastic Cole is paired with seasoned local homicide detective Jim Campbell, and the two quickly discover that their match was made somewhere other than heaven.
