The "Dog Whisperer" is back, this time to answer emergency calls from communities terrorized by unruly canines.

Think "Cold Case" meets "CSI" with a bit of "Rizzoli & Isles" mixed in, then make it real. That's the formula for this unscripted procedural drama that follows two veteran female investigators as they attempt to crack murder cases that have lingered for years without answers and closure. Kelly Siegler is an attorney and former Texas prosecutor who successfully tried 68 murder cases in her 21 years on the job, including 20 capital murder death penalty cases in which she secured the death penalty in 19 of those trials. She gets help from veteran detectives, who dig into small-town murder cases that have gone unsolved for years in the hope of getting justice for the victims and their loved ones.
