Jane and Maura investigate a warehouse fire in which a fireman, Craig Hill, was killed. Maura finds that the fire likely started from a heater that had been tampered with. The building was a denim factory and the owner, Arnold Whistler, had a number of sexual harassment lawsuits filed against him. Meanwhile, Maura' and her mother Constance are the victims of a hit and run driver. Maura escapes with a few scrapes and bruises but Constance is seriously injured. When she finds her biological father, mobster Paddy Doyle, visiting her Jane begins to wonder if there's a connection. When they locate the car however, they find direct evidence to the warehouse fire leading the police to think that someone killed the fireman and then set out to eliminate Maura who must have come across some critical information.
