Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the death of a recently adopted baby who the parents say fell out of her crib. When the police search an apartment, they find another child, their 7 year old Nicholas Waring who, they subsequently find, was severely abused before he was adopted by his current parents but is now a sociopath. Recently transferred ADA Abbie Carmichael takes charge of the case intent on finding what exactly happened. It all leads to a Russian baby broker who was finding homes for sick children and an American couple who got rid of the baby as soon as they found out how ill she was. Written by garykmcd
