Full Plot

Chief Johnson and the Priority homicide squad investigate the case of a serial gay-basher who is on the prowl. The case is politically sensitive and has the interest of an influential State legislator. When Lt. Flynn gets a hot tip on a possible suspect, he passes it on to his mentor, Captain Taylor, who makes the high profile arrest. Brenda isn't convinced that the man they've arrested is actually guilty of this particular crime and refuses to close the case. When Lt. Provenza finds key evidence that shows the suspect couldn't have done it, Brenda looks closer to home for a solution. Meanwhile she is also having to deal with her sick cat who, it turns out, isn't exactly sick. garykmcd Plot not found
