Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the shooting of James Shepherd who was walking to his home from the parking garage where he keeps his car. He had just returned home from an outing with his wife Robin and 8 year-old daughter to celebrate the child's birthday. Forensics reports that the same weapon was used in a hit some two years before by a professional hit-man. A fixer points the finger at Robin Shepherd's former mother-in-law, Estelle Muller whose son Rick was married to Robin until he died some 5 years ago in a rock climbing accident in Central Park. Jim Shepherd was with him when Rick died and and Estelle is convinced he was responsible for her son's death. She makes no bones about ordering the hit but offers to plead guilty if the police and DA investigates Shepherd for murdering her son. A new autopsy on Rick Muller shows he was hit on the head with a baseball bat before he fell. The DA decides to proceed against Jim Shepherd Written by

The bullet went in behind his ear at a shallow angle, hit the inside of his skull, and skidded around to the other ear.
Boy, that'll clear out the wax real good.
If you don't mind loud noises. The striations on the damaged side of the bullet don't match anything in our files.
Yeah, except the inside of his skull.
Which I can't mount on my microscope.
