The week does not start well for Jane when her boss imposes a mandatory health week with no coffee. The murder victim was a popular author, who was posed as a suicide, but Maura finds evidence that it was not. The author was finishing the last pages of his manuscript, that remains no where to be found. When a person of interest, a doctor in a therapy center, turns up dead again from a suspicious looking suicide, they find a piece of paper that comes from a check. Frost is thrown when the mother of someone he helped convict comes to him to plea is innocence again when her son has been denied for the last time a retrial. He informs the mother that the evidence against her son was overwhelming and he cannot do anything about it. Jane encourages Frost to look into it, and Maura makes a stunning discovery that connects all three cases together.
