Detectives Cerreta and Logan investigate the shooting death of Marshall McFadden, a merger and acquisitions expert worth hundreds of million. He was found sitting at his desk at his office and the gun was left at the scene. He may have had many enemies given that he often bought companies only to break them up for resale and closing unprofitable units. Their first suspect is Simon Vilanis who, after working for 40 years, lost his pension, health care and even his place to live after McFadden bought out the company he worked for. Simon's gun was used in the shooting but it's quickly apparent that someone had taken his gun to commit the crime. They then learn that just as McFadden was to be indicted, the Justice Department unit investigating was shut down. There were ties between McFadden and a major bank, one that was run by DA Adam Schiff's good friend Dwight Corcoran. Adam wants Corcoran to pay the full price for what he's done. Written by

So what's the story? What's with this pro se nonsense?
I want my day in court, to show what that bastard did to us.
But you didn't kill McFadden.
Nope. But I'd make a hell of a scapegoat. Me and my big mouth.
