Identity problem
8 March 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The death of sporting goods salesman with ties to the west side Irish gang is the case that Jesse Martin and Jerry Orbach are assigned in this story. This episode is one that Jesse Martin shines in as well as guest star Michael O'Keefe playing a deadly, but charming Irish crime boss.

The investigation shows the deceased was also a drug dealer and sold some junk that caused the death of his niece. That sure gives motive, very personal motive. But identification will be a big problem because the victim's father who is an upstate college professor is O'Keefe's younger brother who is also played by O'Keefe.

You almost hope that O'Keefe gets away with it but for the fact that an innocent cabdriver is killed, an African immigrant played by Teagle Bougere who was persuaded by Martin to come forward and give testimony. His death sets Martin on edge and the audience someone pays for all this.

O'Keefe the gangster leads a charmed life with law enforcement and there are a couple of FBI agents responsible for it. One of them Robert John Burke has a lot of history going back with the brothers O'Keefe.

There's justice of a sort in the end, but for all the wrong reasons.
