Detectives Cerreta and Logan investigate a shooting where Marcus Tate is killed at a town hall meeting of the African-American Congress. The suspected shooter is described as a white male but no one seems to have seen anything more. The investigation leads them to Mitchell Koblin, who is married though separated from his African-American wife, Sandra Koblin, who works for the ACA. The bullet that killed Tate is of no forensic value but one of his bodyguards was definitely shot by Koblin's gun. The ACA is a radical organization though Tate was moderating his message against whites and Jews. That Koblin is Jewish creates a tense atmosphere in the communities and ADA Stone needs to act quickly to prevent violence in the streets. Written by
