Kari Matchett ("Invastion") and Illeana Douglas ("To Die For," "Six Feet Under") guest star as Monica Tanner, a high-end madam, and Gloria Dent, Monica's top-rate attorney.   Henry Simmons ("NYPD Blue"), Ron Glass ("Barney Miller") and Matt Lanter ("Commander in Chief") return as Isaac Wright, a private investigator working with Sebastian's team; trial judge Stewart Fenton, and Julie's boyfriend, Eddie.

Sebastian's team soon learns that the dead prostitute worked for Hollywood's high-end madam, Monica Tanner, with whom Sebastian has a history that he refuses to fully disclose.  This enrages Jessica, who wants nothing to get in the way of nailing the killer of one of her favorite prosecutors.  Meanwhile, Sebastian is concerned about Julie's progressing romance with Eddie.
