The elite team of investigators include Detective Michelle Wood, a homicide officer from Chicago with 13 years on the force; Detective Joe Schillaci, a 30-year veteran of the Miami PD with a background in homicide and undercover work; and Kevin "Spider" Gannon, a retired NYPD detective and supervisor. With no prior knowledge of the crime or the verdict, Michelle, Joe and Kevin will begin their investigation at a meticulously reconstructed crime scene and will work the case, interviewing first-person players and forensic specialists. The question is: will they come to the same conclusion as in the original case? Or could the wrong man be behind bars?
