Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Richard Spiegel, CFO of a major New York City department. The company was run by Spiegel's wife Kate and her sister Laura after their father Seymour Bergreen retired. The investigation leads them to designer Paul Medici who it turns out was having an affair with Kate. He has a solid alibi for the time of the killing however. They subsequently learn the victim had consulted a criminal attorney and that Laura Bergreen may have been using employee pension funds to pay off the store's debts. When they locate the murder weapon, they find the gun was owned by Kate and had Laura's fingerprints on the barrel. Both sisters are arrested but there is no evidence of a conspiracy and little specific information to point the finger at one or the other. Written by

We screwed up, we're not supposed to screw up.
You act like this is the first case you lost.
It's not, doesn't mean I have to like it. A murderer goes unpunished, it's bad for business.
Laura Bergreen's not the first rich person to get away with murder... and she won't be the last.
