With Phil Cerreta recovering from his gunshot wounds, Detective Logan is partnered with Det. Lennie Briscoe, an old hand whose brash demeanor is somewhat off-putting. Their first case is a shooting death outside a nightclub just around closing time. The shooter, Mary Kostrinski, freely admits killing the man saying she was in fear of being raped. Dr. Elizabeth Olivet's opinion is that the woman was in genuine fear of her life. The police investigation and her account of events don't add up. She's charged with murder but Stone is prepared to deal to get a conviction, especially after Olivet is called as a defense witness. She has bigger fish for him to fry. Meanwhile, Phil Cerreta decides not to return to the streets. Written by garykmcd

Wanted to add in goofs
9 July 2019 | by bob-vanpeltSee all my reviews

Just before the line up for the witness to identify the killer. The scene card said 33rd Precinct. They are in the 27th Precinct. There would be no reason for detectives working a case out of the 27th to have a line up at the 33rd.
