A pregnant woman is found shot and dying in the back of a stolen car, she dies and her 29 week infant is touch and go on life support. She worked as a loan officer in a bank and was squeaky clean, apparently.

The investigation by Briscoe and Green centers on a rising pro basketball star who knew her back when. Kevin Daniels is the star and stars in any field of endeavor always think that things can be fixed. Daniels also has a friend in Dorian Missick a known drug dealer whom he arranges some clean money from a bank to finance drug operations, but stays he thinks at a respectable distance.

Daniels has had problems all his life, but his basketball talent and the value some place on it has saved him on more than one occasion. Nobody wants to believe Daniels is guilty of anything. Like Bill Cosby, like OJ. It's the biggest barrier Sam Waterston has in prosecuting him.

It must be obvious to you that Daniels is the father of the victim's child, something else he doesn't want to acknowledge. The show handled that issue rather clumsily as it also introduced a character who is identified as the victim's fiancé.

Still not a bad show, in fact it's always good when someone with privileges is shown that privileges have their limits.
