Review by:
Emma Sturgess

Teresa Lisbon’s brow habitually darkens when the subject of her family is raised. When her younger brother Tommy turns up at the home of a murder victim, it looks likely that she’ll frown herself into an early grave. Both Lisbons are chasing the same man, with the added complication of Annabeth, Tommy’s trigger-happy teenage daughter, coming along for the ride.

The settings and scenarios – country club, dead police chief, Rigsby and Van Pelt doing a bit of light flirting – are bread and butter for The Mentalist, but two things are missing. There’s not enough actual Mentalist and, following an unfortunate run-in with Tommy’s car, there’s not enough Cho.

About this programme

6/24. The team investigates the murder of a police chief, and Lisbon is in for a surprise when her bounty hunter brother Tommy and his daughter turn up unexpectedly. The agent is initially reluctant to have her relatives around, but when Tommy and the CBI's investigations cross paths, the team must plan a whole new strategy to catch the killer.
