Brisco and Green investigate the shooting death of 31 year-old Martha Krasner who was shot while driving her car out of a downtown parking garage. Her husband has no idea of who might have wanted her dead. With good reason as it turns out that the intended victim was in fact some who drove the same color car, investigative journalist Kate Pierce. It leads them to the inept hit man Marty Blatt who claims he was hired by a hood Albert Bennato. He also says the hit was about vote rigging in a State Senate race. It just so happens that Bennato's one-time lawyer was State Senator Anne Benton and suddenly McCoy has a very political case on his hands. Written by garykmcd

Politics making some very strange bedfellows
1 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A woman is shot and killed in what first looks like road rage. But as Jesse Martin and Jerry Orbach further investigate this was a hit. What is worse that the shooter got the wrong woman.

The intended target was investigative reporter Kate Jennings Grant and she was looking into any number of stories. But the one that made her a target was a disputed election for State Senator that had to occur on the Upper East Side of Manhattan the only area of the borough where Republicans are reasonably competitive.

Shades of the presidential election. Someone made off with some absentee ballots and instead of destroying them, held them for God knows what reason. It's what I can't figure out. They were held in custody of some mob figures who have a connection to State Senator Deborah Hedwall, a member of 'the Rainbow Coalition'.

Having worked at the Board of Elections in Brooklyn in my younger days I could be critical of this in ways not normal for most viewers. I think though for Hedwall there could be a special election in her future if she gets the right judge, if she doesn't go to jail
