Jessica's friend, retired Irish police officer Sean Cullane, started, with her help, teaching crime classes. Michael O'Connor, a serial Ulster criminal, who just migrated to New York, provokes him, promising 'revenge', and manages to get threatened in Patrick MacNair's Irish pub, so Sean is warned by the NYPD. Michael's even shadier nephew Ian O'Connor, who desires Sean's daughter Kathleen, is dangerously in debt with loan shark Finn Dawley, yet Michael refuses further financial help. Next, Michael is found shot in the head, Sean the sole suspect. Jessica is determined to 'help' NYPD Lt. Parnell dig deeper, examining the very accusing 'testament' tape Michael left.

The title comes from a quote by Captain Ahab in Herman Melville
's seafaring classic 'Moby Dick': "Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee." See more
The problem is that often an investigator only looks for what he expects to find. A detective is called to a murder. The wound appears to have been caused by a knife blade. So, he looks for a knife not stopping to consider that the knife may have been used to conceal the telltale marks of the real weapon. And by the time the coroner's report comes in, the crime scene has been contaminated and the *real* murder weapon has been lost or mishandled.
