Brenda's interview with the Mayor for the Chief position is scheduled for the next day and she is having serious doubts about whether she really wants the job. When a murder comes along, she tries to use it as an excuse to postpone the interview, but those around her have other things in mind. As for the murder, the victim is Judy Lynn, a D-list celebrity who has made a name for herself through her video blog where she documents her daily life. Her last entry was that she was going out on a date - her first in two years - with someone she hooked up with on an Internet dating site. They quickly track down the man. All the evidence points to him as the culprit, but the solution lies elsewhere. Written by garykmcd
