After rock star Bo Russell discovers his brother's body in the isolation booth of a top recording studio, Norah finds herself investigating a crime in unfamiliar territory. Bo's group, The Earth Shakers, are a staunchly loyal bunch, and Norah's police skills are put to the test as the musicians close ranks to protect one another. To make matters worse, Norah must defend herself in her own right: she is under investigation for shooting an unarmed would-be mugger. With bad feeling in the station house and harassing phone calls at home, Norah must face these challenges alone. Knowing that she needs to earn back the trust and support of her peers, Norah sets out to solve the puzzling mysteries of the Rocker case while defending her own behavior in a curious reversal of roles. Full of surprises, Lockout is Lillian O'Donnell at her all-time best.
