Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of a man found in the trunk of a car. The driver was pulled over because the plates clearly did not belong to the car to which they were attached. Finding a body in the trunk led to the death of the driver, following a shootout with the police. The medical examiner determines that the man in the trunk was shot but the bullets were removed from his body. The dead driver had Russian prison tattoos on his body. The man in the trunk is identified as a Russian, Vasily Chuikov, who immigrated over 10 years ago and had a watch booth on 47th St. He had gone to a lunchtime meeting with potential clients and wasn't seen again. They find a potential witness in 10 year-old Billy Woodson who has clearly been traumatized by what he saw. The shooter is eventually identified as Andre Rogatin a Russian hood who was last seen in Moscow just a couple weeks ago. The evidence leads them to a physiotherapy clinic in Brooklyn and the Russian mafia. For ... Written by garykmcd
