A detective is in harm's way when an undercover cop makes a mistake; a domestic-quarrel case leads to a grim discovery; a drug lord is pursued; a killer goes on a rampage in a cathedral; and a detective infiltrates a drug gang.
An undercover operation to catch a drug dealer; a case involving the burned body of a homeless person; the murder of a cabdriver gunned down in front of his family; the kidnapping of a marine; and a case involving a family drug ring.
The person responsible for killing a mother in a road-rage attack is sought; the death of an elderly woman found at the foot of a stairway is investigated; family members are murdered in a home; a rape suspect is interrogated; and a killer who stabbed a woman in her kitchen is hunted.
The murder of a transvestite is investigated; a detective exits a crack house firing his gun; a new fingerprint technology is used to solve a cold case. Also: a missing-persons case; and the hunt for the killers of two brothers.
