In New Jersey genetic criminologist Billie Quinn assumes the convicted are guilty with little room for a mistake fostered by being the offspring of a mobster who along with his colleagues always claimed innocence even when caught during the act of breaking the law. She never knew when her dad might not come home when he is a guest of the state; in fact he is about to be released from Rahway. Her mom was murdered when she was nine though the person arrested had an airtight alibi. .

Former NFL star and now lawyer Joe Franklin and Sister Catherine "CC" Christine hire The Genetic Testing laboratory to evaluate evidence that convicted David Falco of rape and murder ten years ago in the infamous Suicide-King case. Billie and her boss Lewis LeBarge begin to look at what has been collected so far. As always, Billie's first reaction when she is asked to prove the innocence of a convicted murderer is he is guilty. However, Billie begins to change her mind and for the first time wonders if the system has convicted the wrong person. Using new DNA testing to prove her new assertion, Billie is unaware that the true culprit is observing her progress; if she gets to close she will become the next victim.

This is a terrific criminal investigation tale that will hook the audience with the work performed by Billie and Lewis. The case is a fabulous did he do it while the support cast enhances the plot as they either bring out the best and worst in Billie and Lewis or further the inquiries. Fans of powerful sleuthing mysteries will appreciate this fine drama that never slows down once the GTL team accept the case and will want future investigations starring the ensemble.
