Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate what appears to be an assassination attempt on Roland Brooks, the leader of the Africa-America Congress. Brooks himself had become the head of the AAC after the assassination of his predecessor, Marcus Tate. The initial investigation focuses on building contractors who were under AAC pressure to increase minority hiring. Their focus however soon turns to Huey Tate, Brooks' predecessor as head of the AAC. They seem to have an open and shut case when Tate's friend, Angela Roney provides a tape recorded conversation with Tate where he admits he's going to kills Brooks. When it's revealed Roney was once a paid informant for the FBI, the case quickly falls apart. Written by
