Plot Edit

A prison warden William Hendry (Corbin Bernsen) claims he was brutalized and forced to pay a $50,000 ransom for his long-kidnapped wife, but Detectives Goren and Eames are puzzled when they discover that the missing woman has been happily cohabiting with an escaped prisoner for 10 years. Amid a backwash of lingering secrets and lies, the investigators re-visit the warden's past and recall a famous axiom - follow the money.


Prison Warden Hendry set himself up to look as if he had been brutalized. Instead of pining for his long-kidnapped wife over the years, he had actually paid off Vic Bowman to kidnap his wife because she had been planning to take out a loan for a greeting card company. Applying for the loan would have required a background check which would have exposed a secret stash of money the warden had for himself which he wanted to keep from her.
