Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the murder of Bill Prescott an accountant with a major New York firm. He was shot just outside of his in-laws home as he was arriving for a party. They're able to rule out a mugging as no one took his wallet. Prescott was in the process of negotiating with a union over downsizing at a failing airline. That goes nowhere but ballistics give them enough information on the gun to lead them to Tom Harrigan, a subway worker whose son was recently expelled from a posh private school where Prescott served on the board of governors. Harrigan confesses to the killing but ADA McCoy isn't certain they have the right person behind bars. Written by
