Stan's bankruptcy client, Maureen Thompson, is accused of her husband's murder. Her alleged motive is the proceeds of a large insurance policy on her husband's life that would cure her financial woes. Stan assigns the case to his partner, Paula Waters, who at first is excited about getting a new high-profile murder case - but her excitement is soon dampened when she learns this isn't the first of Maureen Thompson's husbands to be hacked to death with an ice pick!
While Paula is trying to prove Maureen Thompson isn't the Ice Pick Widow, Turner & Water's new associated Jodie Marshall goes under cover in a wrongful death case against Alliance Fabrication, a sweatshop that fronts for a Mexican drug cartel's money-laundering operation. Stan enlists the Dallas Police and FBI to help out in their quest to prove Icaro Melendez ordered the murder of Romildo Alvarez but they still find themselves in mortal danger and wonder if they haven't made a big mistake in taking on such an impossible case.
