The Mentalist tells the tale of Patrick Jane, who is employed as an independent detective working with the California Bureau of Investigation to solve crimes. He was making a living as a psychic and would assist the police on cases — only his life changed when he lost the two most important people in his life to one of those serial killers he was helping track. He uses his refined observation skills to help them solve cases. He works with Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon, Agents Kimball Cho & Wayne Rigsby and the rookie Grace Van Pelt.
