Larry Feldman, a heart surgeon is murdered at the Bar Mitzvah of his son Ricky. Goren and Eames realize that Feldman had recently gone through a bitter divorce, and that his bitter ex-wife, Julie, believed he was committing child sexual abuse against their daughter Sophie. As their investigation deepens, their attention turns to Charles Webb, a forensic psychiatrist who often testifies as an expert witness for ADA Carver in criminal trials. The detectives discover that after becoming obsessed with Sara Lindstrom, Julie's sister, Webb attempted to gain her affections by helping her sister gain custody of her children, and hired a corrupt detective to murder Feldman. When confronted, Webb's attorney lays down an insanity defense and attempts to have him sent to a psychiatric hospital, but Goren proves that the insanity plea is bogus.
