Jail Medic


Countryside welder Kirby Hines (29) has been killed and dragged onto land, the disputed oil rights on which are worth millions. His widow Donna and family hide secrets. Patrick can only advise from a distance, being jailed on a charge of abusing CBI information in his search for Red John. While the team tries to get Sam Bosco to rescind the charge, Jane expertly manipulates his jail mates, and even arranges to get a suspect in the Hines case to get arrested and jailed.
