Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Heather Rade (as Emily Foxler)


Wealthy San Francisco investment broker Landon Wale (45) was shot in the Sacremento company K-Ram's HQ. Patrick is criticizing the questioning technique of the detective Reece, who arrested him, holding the smoking murder weapon, having responded to a call for help from his own, dodgy brother in law Danny Ruskin. The SPD was responding to an anonymous call. Widow Concetta Wale realizes a solid golden Aphrodite statue is missing from their home safe. K-ram was a fake company, part of one of Danny's financial scams. Patrick is released in Lisbon's custody but dumps her to find and protect Danny first while the team tracks down the financial scams. Written by KGF Vissers
