Toby Logan is a paramedic in Toronto and he is also a telepath. He also receives psychic flashes visions of events which occurred around the people he meets. He grew up in foster homes under an assumed name, and he learns (during the first season) that he has a brother and that his mother, Maya, is still alive.
At the start, he has kept his talent a secret, believing it to be a curse. Only his mentor, Dr. Ray, knows about it. Oz, his paramedic partner, and his ex-girlfriend Olivia, an E.R. doctor, have no idea that he can read their thoughts.
Toby decides (after the first episode) that he can serve other people by giving Detective Charlie Marks the benefit of his insights. Which doesn't go down well with other cops.

Toby & Oz made a bog of an evaluation exercise then Toby got a flash about an apartment building, which exploded in flames. The cops thought that Vince, one of Toby's foster brothers, had blown up his meth lab. Toby knew that the fire was deliberately set, so he had to convince the dumb cops that there was an arsonist around.
Det. Charlie decided that Toby was the arsonist, so he pointed her at Mr. Wade, the pyro, who said he was innocent. Toby made the fireman who was getting pally with Dr. Olivia his prime suspect. No, he was just guilty about freezing in a fire.
Toby & Charlie both spotted Kyle of Victim Resource, who jumped out of a window but Toby knew that he had left behind another fire-starting bomb. So everyone, including the fireman who froze, got to be a hero when it went off and the people in the building had to be rescued.

Ashley was stashed in a storage locker. The psycho dropped a bracelet belonging to her, as confirmed by her mother, proving to the police that Toby was on to something. Dr. Ray found that the psycho wasn't a telepath. Toby had a dream about his mother, a brother and danger. Dr. Ray told him, "Don't go there," as the man who brought Toby to Dr. Ray was very afraid of lots of things.
Ashley had been kidnapped by the guy running the storage facility and the psycho had been bringing her presents.

Toby gave Jason to the police, he got a ride in an ambulance, he wasn't the killer but Det. Charlie didn't want to know.
Toby had a suspect, but he'd been dead for a month. Mina was a mortuary technician, who had been about to blow the whistle on her boss, Dr. Farrell, for covering up medical blunders and writing false autopsy reports. The police took an interest in Farrell, only for the real killer to confess to Toby.
