Storyline

Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the killing of a police officer Danny Pelham who along with his partner Peter Bowers were on a stakeout looking to serve a warrant on a criminal, Terry Mays. In addition to looking for Mays, the detectives also start looking into his old cases to see if anyone might have been out for revenge. When they catch up to Mays, he tells them he saw someone shoot Pelham. Pelham had just broken up with his police officer girlfriend Marissa Hastings and she was still keeping tabs on him. She's arrested for his murder but it seems he was the one who was assaulting her and she may have killed him out of fear. It turns out she even called Internal Affairs to complain about Pelham and that he's attacked her but they did nothing. They're well into the trial before the prosecution realize they may have got it wrong. Written by garykmcd

Anybody check out Pie Man?
9 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this guy (Holt McCallany). It was from "Mr. Monk and the Three Pies." He killed his wife and was looking for a shell casing. He surmised it fell into one of three pies. I didn't like his character then, and I am very suspicious of him here, even if he is a cop.

A cop is killed and Detective Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Detective Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt) go after the usual suspects. They are not guilty. of course, and suspicions falls on another cop (Ellen McLaughlin). Despite the fact that they are almost through with the trial, Dr. Skoda (J.K. Simmons) is not so sure she is guilty. What next? Find another suspect? Hey, try the Pie Man. I don't like him anyway. Did he do it? I'll never tell.

Another chance to see Jerry Orbach and Angie Harmon. What more could you ask for?
