Snyder Family Values
22 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Meet the Snyder Family which is what Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin have to do in investigating the death of the second Mrs. Snyder. The deceased was thrown off a roof of a studio apartment building where she kept her old pad for possibly trysting purposes with her old boyfriend Joseph Murphy.

The husband was William Atherton who broke his old marriage up to Jayne Atkinson, left her and their two children to marry this 20 something trophy wife. It pretty much ruined Atkinson who started abusing substances including some narcotics she could easily obtain at the hospital she works at as an anesthesiologist. It's one of those components for anesthesia that's found in the dead woman's toxicology screen that zooms Atkinson to the top of the list.

Sam Waterston knows he has a weak case as no one saw Atkinson anywhere near the premises, but the presence of the drug makes the first Mrs. Snyder top of the list even though you could construct good motives for both Atherton and Murphy.

Best scene in the story is when Briscoe and Green interview Jane Houdyshell who has worked for Atherton for many years and tells them in no uncertain terms how the victim who also worked for him just set her cap to trap him. No one thinks this was love, but Houdyshell makes it plain as day that this woman not Madonna was the original material girl.

Interesting how this one comes out, definitely see it.
