Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the murder of businessman William Cooper who was found dead in his office. The man had been at his business late the night before and was killed with the gun he kept in his desk drawer. His wife Irina - a Russian mail-order bride 30 years his junior - says he has no enemies and seems to have a valid alibi. When they learn she was seen with a young Hispanic-looking man however, they focus on an affair as being the principal cause of the shooting. Irina worked in a lab and one of her colleagues Alex Nunez, proves to be her lover. They are charged with murder and ADA Stone is prepared to plea bargain but neither will give in as it soon becomes apparent that they are very much in love and will not betray the other. Written by
