Storyline

Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Donny Gibson, who was found dead in a parking lot. Gibson installed sound systems in bars and clubs and was out with $4000 in cash in his pocket looking to buy some high end speakers. The police know that that Sean Russo, the son of an imprisoned mob boss, met him that night though he denies it. When Jack McCoy concludes that the young Russo is likely now the head of the Russo crime family, he has his bail raised to $10 million. When the DA's office learns there's a connection between Gibson and a nightclub owner putting up some of the bail, McCoy goes after the night club owners, Tom Wilder and Jeff Stahl who told Russo that Gibson was pressing for the payment of outstanding bills for the sound system he installed. He also threatened to go to the FBI to let them know Russo was an investor in their club. McCoy biggest problem in the case however is a federal prosecutor who also wants to go after Russo.
