When a pregnant woman who was struggling to stay clean from drugs is found slain, Detectives Goren and Eames search for her ex-junkie boyfriend whose tattered life is dominated by his wealthy socialite mother. While Captain Deakins (Jamey Sheridan) wants to hand off the seemingly open-and-shut case to the homicide cops, Goren protests that killing a pregnant woman deserves a more hands-on investigation -- and the detective soon finds a sticky web that extends to many dirty hands.
