Take a walk on the wild side with the professionals who seal up the cracks in the American criminal justice system. When a judge grants a criminal defendant bail, only 90% of that money is paid to the court. The remainder goes to a bail bondsman, who then becomes legally responsible for the conduct of the person in question. Every year, tens of thousands of these individuals, fearing negative trial results, decide to take it on the lam! That's where the bounty hunter steps in, hunting these fugitives down-or forfeiting his salary! This groundbreaking series presents 80 astonishing case studies of real bounty hunters in action: cornering and subduing their prey in the shadowy netherworld that lurks just beneath the soul of America. Take vivid part in a violent cat-and-mouse game that isn't just a matter of law enforcement... it's raw and it's personal!
