Plot Overview

When a burglary goes terribly wrong, Captain Matt Holbrook is faced with a homicide. Apparently Alfred Streger was shot and killed by small-time crook Danny Falto. The ongoing investigation gives Matt a complicated murder puzzle to solve. The break comes when one of the burglars ends up in hospital with a twisted ankle.
