Storyline

Ben's rich and unpleasant client Ellis Blake strongly disapproves of his daughter's fiancee, who also happens to be his caddie and a very successful blackmailer. Then, the boy is found shot with Blake's own gun, and 10,000 dollars - the exact sum Blake promised him if the engagement were to ever be broken - is found scattered around his apartment. The case seems fairly open and shut, which delights the new deputy D.A. Lauren Richmond, as this is not only her first case but also a chance to score big against a famous defense lawyer. She is able to bring enough witnesses and evidence to ensure a guilty verdict and leave Matlock helpless, unable to even file an appeal. However, this case turns out to be much deeper and darker than at first glance. Written by Eebuchanan
