As Patrick fights off bankruptcy, the ring's professional thugs burn his office to the ground; attack his private investigator, Jim Brogan, putting him in a coma and return to murder Patrick, Liam and their associates in an effort to stop their investigation into the child pornography ring. As the trial date draws near, Patrick is dealt a final bitter blow. His wife Cindy files for divorce. Kelly Madison, Patrick's paralegal, sticks with him through his darkest hours.
