When the police break up a dog-fighting ring in the home of Jay Carlin, the medical examiner finds a human finger in the stomach of one of the dead animals. Detectives Lupo and Green trace the animals to a kennel where the owner claims that Carlin is his partner. The wife of Carlin's friend Marty Vance, Lauren Vance, is missing but the police can't find any physical evidence linking him to his wife's disappearance or that the finger is hers. Her divorce lawyer tells them that she was concerned her husband was hiding assets. They find Lauren's body buried near the kennel but also learn that Jay Carlin may have been defrauding buyers of supposedly rare wines. Written by garykmcd

"6 hours later you'd be scraping it off your shoe."
11 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

If it hadn't been for a raid on the home of some Yuppie millionaire played by David Harbour where he was conducting a fighting dog exhibition the cops might never have known about a really clever murder plot. Or if a dead dog had not fully digested a woman's hand says Leslie Hendrix you would be scraping it off your shoe.

This case has enough twist for both the detectives and the prosecution to qualify for a ride at Coney Island. The victim was the wife of Adam Rothenberg a friend of Harbour's and one of the spectator's at the dog fight.

Rothenberg is charged first, but then Linus Roache has some second thoughts as evidence points to Harbour as well. There's also a TV news reporter who's been intimate with both guys all in pursuit of a news story you understand. Lara Flynn Boyle has the most interesting part of all in these proceedings.

I can't say any more, this is too good to reveal, but boy does Linus Roache get played.
