With Brenda being interviewed by Captain Rayder over the death of a suspect she released, Lt. Mike Tao becomes the senior officer in charge of searching for a missing 9-year-old boy. The boy's parents are divorced and hostile, with the mother now living with her new boyfriend, an ex-Las Vegas policeman who has a history of domestic abuse. The boy, found floating in a swimming pool more than a mile away, rode his new bike to summer camp that morning - a camp where Lt. Tao's son, Kevin, was a teen counselor to the lad. The autopsy, however, reveals death by drug overdose rather than drowning. While trying to solve the case, Brenda does everything she can to avoid Raydor and her needling about getting a lawyer against the impending lawsuit. Written by garykmcd / edited by statmanjeff
