Pride is surveilling a security guard, Kent Crawford, and his family. Pride is reassigned from being Special Agent in Charge. LaSalle and Gregorio go to look for Dana Wilson, a missing petty officer, in Bovis, Miss. They meet the mayor/police chief, Charlie Conroy. They find Wilson dead under the floorboards in the garage of her aunt's house. As Pride comes out of the Tru Tone, someone is tailing him, and it turns out to be Isler.
