Where no one wants it to go
9 July 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

There are a few cases that Bobby Goren really gets outraged about and this one is one of them. A prominent New York society person is stabbed to death. His daughter is Aleksa Palladino a Paris Hilton type who makes all kinds of headlines for the wrong reason. Currently she's involved with trendy club owner Adam Trese and that club is very mobbed up.

What Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe discover during the course of the investigation is that Trese is an FBI agent and the club is involved in an elaborate sting operation against a crime family. This is not any place where anyone wants this case to go.

It's interesting how many roadblocks the Feds throw up and how Goren and Eames dodge them. Trese is a coldblooded sort and somewhere during his undercover work he became worse than the people he was stinging.

Also interesting to see how Trese is tripped up. That's worth seeing this episode alone for.
