When Detective Megan Wheeler joined Major Case Squad, she was immediately paired with veteran cop, Detective Logan. Det. Logan was convinced that her youth and inexperience would hamper their ability to work together. But as Det. Logan soon found out, Det. Wheeler is a good cop who doesn't take her job lying down.

Having grown up with a single mother and a non-existent mob lawyer father, Det. Wheeler has the ability to be reconciled with her past and put each case in front of her with clarity, freshness and precision. Fashioned and possibly favored by her mentor, Capt. Danny Ross, Wheeler has been hungry to earn her stripes at the Major Case Squad.
