Detectives Goren and Eames investigate the murder of a promising young architecture student.

Plot Edit

The murder of an architect working on a design to replace the World Trade Center leads Goren and Eames to investigate another, famous architect whom the victim was studying. Once the unusual martial status of this person is discovered, the available evidence points to only one suspect. In addition, a previously unknown connection the two architects had is exposed.

The murdered architect turned out to be the illegitimate son of the famous architect. One of the famous architect's wives, the pregnant one, killed the illegitimate son because she thought he would ruin her husband. The famous architect mourns over the loss of his illegitimate son who had the same vision as he did.
