Still recovering from his grandfather's death, Ben gets back to work on an emotionally testing case: the accidental death of a child left in a car by his parents.

The DPP is put into an awkward position when an elderly computer expert comes forward having skimmed hundreds of thousands of dollars off subscribers to a hardcore porn site — his real intention being to generate publicity for his anti-pornography campaign.
