Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the murder of David and Eileen Lerner who were were found stabbed to death at home in their bed. The killer entered the house through a window and even used a knife from the kitchen to commit the crime. The Lerner's had lived there for only a year and the police can find no one who disliked or had a grudge against them. When they learn that the house previously belonged to a high profile divorce attorney, Warren Bartlett, they believe a revenge-seeker may have entered to kill him not knowing he had moved. By chance, it seems that the Bartlett's stepson, Steven Smith had a car accident just two blocks from his old home. Smith is an alcoholic and has a substance abuse problem and it will be up to ADA McCoy to convince a jury that he entered the wrong house intent on killing his abusive stepmother.
