Bobby Holland is found dead in his apartment from a gunshot wound to the head. Bobby Holland was gay. The circumstances in the case, such as the bullet wound and the torn up apartment, remind Greevey of two previous killings in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Further investigation leads them to Jack Curry, a man who claims to help terminal AIDS victims end their lives while staging fake robberies to help save face for the victim's conservative families. Now it is up to Stone and Robinette to determine if, by targeting gay men with AIDS, Curry is acting out of mercy or hate.
