Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the death of septuagenarian Peter Triandos who is found dead - strangled - in his apartment. While still investigating the scene, the dead man's much younger wife, Kim Triandos, arrives claiming she was at a museum ball while her husband was entertaining a group of disadvantaged students from his old primary school to whom he promised, years before, that if they stayed in school he would pay for their college education. A total of 17 students were at the party. So was Kim Triandos' mother who says one of the parents, Luis Polanco, got into an argument with Peter. The police quickly return to the young wife however when they catch her in a lie. She denies killing her husband but the DA's office think she conspired with her husband's lawyer, Oliver Shain. They soon learn that someone else was involved with with Shain. Written by
