Having just undergone surgery, Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson leads the investigation into the death of a female DHS agent. The woman was well-known to the LAPD and was frequently in Los Angeles auditing the installation of police telecommunications equipment funded by Homeland Security. Her car is found off the road in a ravine but the autopsy suggests that she probably survived the crash, with a fatal blow to the head with a wooden stick being the murder weapon. She also had pepper spray residue on her face. Brenda and her team are soon in conflict with DHS investigators who are trying to recover the dead woman's cellphone and laptop computer. The biggest shock however is that she was also having an affair with someone - who turns out to be Chief Pope. Written by garykmcd

Dep. Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson: Don't make me guess.
Dr. Morales: Coyotes always feed on the body's soft tissue first. My guess is they left her face alone because of the seasoning.
Dep. Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson: Excuse me?
Dr. Morales: Someone doused your vic with pepper spray, which might explain why she drove off the cliff in the first place.
