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
