The prosecutors case suffers a major setback when a hit man manages to infiltrate the safe house where their only witnesses were being kept. ADA Toni Ricci was killed as was 10 year-old Billy Woodson's mother but the boy survived and is in critical condition in hospital. Detectives Briscoe and Curtis are tasked to find the killers and focus on a young Latino couple who were seen entering the building. It turns out they are connected to Columbian drug dealers meaning the Russians and the Columbians are working together. They find that the Columbians are laundering their drug money through Russian banks. They launch a racketeering case against the Russian mobsters who are definitely playing hardball: they plant a large bomb in the police precinct. McCoy decides to play hardball as well. Written by
