Even with people trusted the most, there may be something sinister lying beneath the surface -- a plot set in motion by someone close with a deadly motive.

These wolves in sheep's clothing use deception as a weapon to try to get away with murder.

For the wannabe detectives watching the show, the experts also reveal how the crime was solved -- which often requires authorities to think like a killer.
