(From Sony)
A child's death in one of Nick Fallin's old cases reunites him with another child who was deeply affected by her relationship with him. Andrea Coffey's little brother Brendan was killed when he was attacked by a dog guarding a junkyard. Although the state goes after their father Lou for negligence, Andrea believes there is more to the story and implores Nick to help her discover the truth. As Nick digs deeper, he discovers that there may be a way to help Andrea both financially and with the custody issues at hand. Meanwhile, Lulu Archer finds herself helping a man recently released from serving a prison term for murder in a divorce hearing. And though she puts forth a good faith effort to help, his own self-destructive behavior works against him in the end.
