The show follows a crime, usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points. The first half of the show concentrates on the investigation of the crime by the police, the second half follows the prosecution of the crime in court.

NYPD Detective Mike Logan, last seen being demoted to a beat on Staten Island after punching a corrupt politician (Law & Order episode "Pride") seeks to solve the grisly murder of a prostitute, and thereby help regain his old job in Manhattan. Written by
This was like fan fiction. Same characters we all know and love but none of the quality of the television show. The dialog was flat, several scenes were repetitive and didn't further the plot in any way, and the cinematography was not at all like any of the other Law & Order shows. Even edited down to one hour this would have been one of the most lame Law & Order episodes ever. I have to wonder if the writer had even seen the show before churning out this drivel. The actors did the best they could with what they had, but this was a stinker from the very first scene. It does not follow the traditional L&O format- no incident before the opening credits, no whump whump, no investigation then trial and the music isn't even the same. Very disappointing.
