Brenda and the Major Crimes unit seek to solve the murder of a very large man found in the trunk of his car. Phil Adams, a diamond broker, stole $3 million in gems from work, precious stones which are now nowhere to be found. Video cameras show him emptying the safe then stopping at a burger restaurant drive-through with someone else in the car with him. A review of his credit cards shows he had joined an Internet club where married people can arrange liaisons. They identify the man in the car as Keith Reyes, whose unusual occupation fools many on the squad, including Det. Sanchez, who is still on limited duties for refusing to undergo therapy. Reyes proves difficult to nail down until Fritz lends a hand. Written by garykmcd / edited by statmanjeff

seriously ?

There is not one competent person on the major crime squad including their micro-managing leader ... is this series going any further with crappy writing like this ... it seems everyone involved with production is getting to insert their not so valuable inputs ... also, the parents are a major pain
