Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the death of a young woman whose nude body is found in an office building elevator. She is eventually identified as Lucy Sullivan by her sister Joanne who is visiting from Indiana. Fingerprints and a report from New Jersey police reveal that Lucy and her husband were con artists who had recently been scamming casinos. The police develop the theory that Lucy may have been on the run from the mob but when they catch Joanna in an outright lie, they believe she murdered her sister. It's going to be a difficult case to prove as the judge, Nathan Marks, seems only interested in two things: ruling the DA's evidence inadmissible and making sexually suggestive comments to ADA Jamie Ross. Then there's also the simple matter of mistaken identity. Written by
