Something out of Alfred Hitchcock
28 March 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Is how Fred Dalton Thompson characterizes this double homicide that Briscoe and Green are investigating. It actually starts out as a single homicide that of express messenger driver and husband of Elizabeth Connors on his route. Incidentally this is Jerry Orbach's farewell to Law And Order as Lennie Briscoe puts in his papers and calls it a career.

The detectives link her through her credit card charges and the fact that by sheer luck they arrest her at a restaurant that Victoria Dillard owns. As it turns out Dillard is also a recent widow, not too recent mind you, of a man who also died as did Connors' husband die of gunshot wounds. Dillard inherits a big fortune for her as a result. That means she hires high priced defense attorney John Benjamin Hickey.

The judge allows simultaneous but separate trials of each defendant with Sam Waterston trying Dillard and Elizabeth Rohm trying Connors. One wins, one loses, but no one is down and out.

This one is quite Hitchcock like and a nice farewell for Jerry Orbach who to me was the face and voice of New York City.
