Plot Edit

Two female vice-unit detectives — the calm and professional Detective Amy Devlin (Evison) and her hotheaded partner, Detective Taylor Lucas (McLellan), a former special agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — are investigating the murder of local pimp Milton Wilder and uncover a conspiracy by four corrupt female police officers who murder felons (including Wilder and Laurette Stipe, a bail-jumping gunrunner biker Devlin and Taylor were pursuing) to harvest their organs for the most-seriously-ill patients using the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (VICAP) DNA database of felons and the organ-donor registry.
