Glitsky is hitting brick walls as he tries to get help from homicide, while Hardy finds himself defending a friend who's been accused of the death.

The Motive: Glitsky is thrust into a controversial double homicide investigation. Convinced the officer has the wrong suspect - Hardy's old girlfriend - he breaks ranks to continue his own investigation. And so begins a search that reveals a trail of deception that leads beyond San Francisco, where exposing secrets can be the most deadly offence...
