A prominent doctor is killed during his son's bar mitzvah, and all signs point to a distinguished psychologist.


The murder of a heart surgeon at his son's bar mitzvah leads to the discovery of a bitter divorce and an allegation of sexual abuse against him. Upon learning the abuse allegation was unfounded, Detectives Goren and Eames discover that the murderer is connected to a psychiatrist who is infatuated with a relative of the victim.
