In November, 1987, Irma Rivera is still a rookie detective when she and her partner investigate a case of a six-year old girl hospitalized with a head injury. Sensing something fishy, they visit the apartment of the child's parents, Joel Steinberg and Hedda Nussbaum, in New York City's affluent West Village. Nothing could have prepared Irma for what she witnesses that day, or for the media frenzy that quickly develops as she investigates the city's biggest child abuse case ever. Nearly 20 years later, Irma is now a veteran detective when she is called in to join the investigation of the death of beloved actress and writer, Adrienne Shelly. Though the medical examiner has termed the death a suicide, detectives, and Adrienne's widower, have doubts. Through careful investigation, Irma and her crew identify a intriguing clue, then a suspect. Now it's Irma's job to sit-down face to face with the perp, and get the confession detectives need to put a killer behind bars.
