Everyone loves the detective character. Headstrong, determined, a lone wolf, and a slave to their job. Nowhere to Hide allows us an insight into this very profile, following the renowned private investigator Steven Rambam.
Rambam joins the Investigation Discovery network to recount numerous past cases he investigated, giving viewers never before seen insights into the life of a private detective and the people he pursues with vigour. His particular specialty has always been disappearances that the police couldn’t get to the bottom of, as well as criminals like scammers and fraudsters, who state police often don’t bother hunting.
And there are some high profile cases in his repertoire. For example, in the episode Kiss and Run from the first season, Rambam helps out the iconic rock band Kiss to track down their manager who declared bankruptcy and then ran away with a whole lot of money that belonged to the band. A classic tale of a fraudulent manager trying to take advantage of his clients.
One of the world’s most renowned in his field, Rambam runs his own licensed investigative firm that has offices worldwide and has participated in investigations in over 50 countries and all over the United States, called Pallorium Inc. Originally from New York, Rambam is a Brooklyn-born hard man from the street, whose tough urban upbringing seasoned him well for his role as a detective.
The show debuted in August 2014, and its second season ended in 2015, with six episodes each. Some of these include Family Funk, where the fate of a family depends on Rambam’s ability to locate a missing husband, or Grave Secrets the story of a 30-year unsolved murder mystery in Mexico that transcends national borders. The show is produced by giants Cineflix and Alex Bystram is the executive producer, while Liz Massie is his shadow at Investigation Discovery, who have praised the show.
Investigation Discovery Group president called Rambam a combination of Batman and Superman. He explains the appeal of the show is that not only does everyone love a huge chase for a criminal and his eventual capture, these are not only real life but have all the gritty details and brutal honesty that the movies often skimp out on.
And fans have certainly appreciated it for these aspects, as it boasts a phenomenal 8.7 rating on IMBD, based on 29 ratings. Fans have praised it for its high profile cases, including the infamous Kiss episode which was a huge success, its honesty and rawness, as well as the variety of cases explored. As determined private investigators who love what they do there is no case Rambam or his firm will not take.
