A double murder in a Malibu beach house owned by renowned "dirty" private investigator Harry Russo, who has history with Stark, has the D.A.'s office in a tizzy. Russo has been under investigation for two years and Jessica Devlin has been building a grand jury case against him. This may be the break she needs to bring him down.
Russo claims not to know the man on trial for murder and when that is proven wrong, he tries to hide behind the confidentiality he promises his clients.
Meanwhile, Julie begins to fall for a boy in her class and begins to help him with his term paper, but leaves little time for her own.
