I talk to the dead, but do they listen to me
15 March 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few episodes in the Law And Order franchise where we actually see the deed done. At a midtown restaurant our victim is sitting having oysters when he just keels over with a cry. The oysters weren't spiked, the special hot sauce the victim was known to bring with him was.

It turns out our victim was some piece of work. Currently he was working a spiritual medium con where he would talk to recently departed cancer patients. The person he was meeting with, Ann Dowd is a pediatric oncologist who was interested in his work for its possible therapeutic value.

But that was only the latest scam this victim was working. Turns out by not so sheer coincidence this man also did real estate scams under a different name and Ann Dowd's family was one of the victims.

Dowd is one compelling and appealing defendant and the victim was an all around rat. In her line of work you have to have a huge reservoir of compassion and seeing all that death among the youngest of us would strain anyone's mental health.

An interesting Law And Order story and Sam Waterston does something very unusual for him in the end. You have to see to find out.
