William Rand, CEO of Battle Tested, is drugged and attacked after appearing on a television to discuss his business with the U.S. government. However, the investigation of the crime leads the detectives to an even bigger scandal that Rand tries to keep under wraps. His assailant's daughter, Cori Green, claims she was gang raped while working for Battle Tested in Basra. She was then placed under guard for 72 hours before being taken to a doctor. Subsequently, all evidence of the crime (including the rape kit) disappeared and no charges were ever filed.
David Haden, an executive assistant to the D.A., works to prove that a coverup was initiated by the CEO in New York, and he finds a witness, one of Cori's guards, willing to testify to the grand jury. Unfortunately, the guard is killed via alcohol poisoning while the other detectives and witnesses are harassed into giving up. The detectives monitor the phone calls of Rand's assistant and overhear crucial information being passed in code. They use this information to get Joe Marshall, a key conspirator, to turn on Rand and his assistant Virginia Pell.
