With time of the essence and the uncertainty of the unfolding events, both men need to remain resourceful and collected or risk losing lives. THE KILL POINT reveals how the hostage takers leverage their situation and how the negotiator tries to unravel their plans. Which man will blink? Who will outsmart the other? Who will survive?

Following in the dramatic tradition of "CSI," Spike TV's "Murder," follows real people as they try to solve a real homicide pulled directly from police files. Two groups of civilians are brought into an exact replica crime scene pulled from the files of a solved homicide case. Every pertinent detail available to the original detectives has been recreated and available to the groups, who then assess the crime scene and collect evidence. The groups are given a list of potential suspects, an opportunity to analyze the suspect's interrogation tapes and then meet with a coroner to review the findings of the original autopsy report. Contestants are given 48 hours to complete their investigation, collect and catalogue their evidence and use their own smarts and instincts to find the murderer.
