Sergeant Greevy and Detective Logan investigate the severe beating of a convenience store owner. A witness describes the attacker as a man wearing a suit and they soon have Joe Pilefski, a mob enforcer for the Mansucci crime family, in custody. They're not quite sure why a mob enforcer would be beating up an old man owning a small store but Logan realizes that the cigarettes he was selling don't have a tax stamp. Soon Pilefsky, Frank Mansucci's brother-in-law Harv Beigal and trucking company owner Mario Zalta charged with conspiracy. Executive ADA Stone see an opportunity to get Mansucci himself for the murder of a missing trucking union boss. He offers immunity to get testimony but it doesn't turn out as he had hoped. Written by
