THE INVESTIGATION INTO THE MURDER OF TRUCK COMPANY OWNER LEADS TO A TWISTED TALE OF LOVE, FRAUD AND THE RUSSIAN MOB
Vic Russell, a trucking company owner, is found murdered after a business meeting with a partner, Stan Klein (Guest Star Adam Grupper). Detectives Lupo (Jeremy Sisto) and Bernard (Anthony Anderson) discover that Klein may have been involved in an illegal scheme to defraud Russell and others. As the investigation continues, the detectives also uncover a trail that leads them to believe that Russell had ties to the Russian mob and Alex Arshavin (Guest Star Michael Aranov), a loan shark. The key to the murder is an expensive watch stolen from Russell's dead body. As A.D.A's Michael Cutter (Linus Roache) and Connie Rubirosa (Alana de la Garza) bring the case to trial, they discover that their star witness, Klein's son Chad (Guest Star Robert Iler) may be involved in a secret love affair and have his own motive for murder. Also starring S. Epatha Merkerson and Sam Waterston
