Premise: Crime novelist Marcus Sakey knows the best stories are usually about the worst people. This series features Sakey visiting cities across America to identify the crimes or criminals that define each place, much as he does when he conducts research for his best-selling books. His experiences in ``Hidden City'' are hands-on -- rappelling with a SWAT team, stealing a car, attending an autopsy -- to better root out the plot, characters and themes that form the underbelly of each city. For Sakey, the ``who'' and ``what'' tell you everything about ``where.''
