Storyline

Ellen begins to explore Patty's relationship with Daniel Purcell. He was a witness in a big case 10 years before and Patty tore him to shreds during his deposition. Ellen begins to wonder if Patty paid him off but their relationship goes back much further and is much more meaningful than that of client and solicitor. As Patty has decided not to take on the child medical care case, the FBI want Ellen to slow down a bit as they are afraid Patty might get wind of what is going on. They also remind Ellen that this kind of sting may take years to come to fruition. Purcell finds himself in jail when the police arrest him trying to leave the country. Written by garykmcd

An Amazing Number of Secrets
6 April 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Purcell is a really complicated character (I've always enjoyed William Hurt). His relationship with Patty is yet another secret that has grave implications yet can't be talked about. As Purcell is investigated, players from everywhere begin to filter in. He is so dishonest that Patty can't for a minute depend on him for consistent information. Meanwhile, a young guy is investigating a farming area where livestock are dying in a dramatic number. However, it is obvious that what he is doing is incredibly dangerous. Ellen continues to act to destroy Patty, never buying that when she was attacked in the apartment, our not so friendly lawyer was the real target. In all of this, a ruby ring that disappeared the night Purcell's wife was murdered becomes a central focus in finding the murderer.
