A girl shows up at Corey's apartment, claiming that she is running from someone who is trying to kill her. However, the detectives all find that nothing she has said checks out, including her numerous aliases, and that she's actually an heiress running from a controlling grandmother. But it does appear that the part about someone trying to kill her may be the truth.
The detectives are shocked when one of their mentors, a highly respected attorney and legal scholar now terminally ill, summons them to his home, along with six other people whom he once successfully defended in murder trials. He announces that one of the six was actually guilty of the crime, though he doesn't say which one, and that he intends to make that person pay now for their crime.
