Middle of Nowhere (Narrator: Ridley Pearson, Engineer: Mountain Beach): The "blue flu" has struck the Seattle Police Force and the majority of officers are on an unofficial strike. When a string of robberies and the brutal near-murder of a female cop descend on the city, the pressure of being a nearly one-man operation threatens Lou Boldt's psyche and his marriage. With the help of Daphne Matthews and Sergeant John LaMoia, Boldt comes to realize that the robberies, assaults, and strike are somehow connected - and that his life is now in very real danger.
The Art of Deception (Narrator: Dick Hill, Engineer: Mike Council): A troubled Mary Ann Walker takes a nosedive off a bridge. Seattle's police department macho man John LaMoia takes the call, along with the beauteous cop psychologist Daphne Matthews. They suspect her boyfriend, known to beat Mary Ann. But the case somehow becomes too slippery to close. Lou Boldt, the supervising officer, is entangled in a conundrum of his own: two women have disappeared and a road crew worker's death may have a connection to the missing women.
Parallel Lies (Narrator: Dick Hill, Engineer: Mike Council): A grieving man is on a mission to bring down the railroad company he blames for his wife and children's deaths -- no matter who else dies in the process. Tyler, the ex-cop who is looking to redeem himself after being suspended from the force, will stop at nothing to catch the perpetrator.
