Despite their differences, the two work well together and complement each other's strengths.

As the investigation progresses, LaRoche and Sparks begin to unravel a web of deceit surrounding the university professor. The professor had been involved in some shady business involving students, and as the detectives delve deeper, they discover a range of suspicious characters who may be involved in the murder. There's Edgar Black, a wealthy businessman who seems to have had a close relationship with professor Jameson, and Emma, Jameson's research assistant at the university who has a hidden agenda of her own.

As the detectives get closer to the truth, danger lurks around every corner. They must race against time to catch the killer and put an end to the murders before the body count rises.
