This particular episode of Law And Order is noteworthy as it is one of
two that real life New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg made on the show.
If that doesn't give Law And Order a ring of authenticity, nothing
But when an Assistant ADA is found murdered in Central Park you would
expect the mayor to issue some kind of public statement. As Jerry
Orbach and Jesse Martin caught the case this one will have more than
the usual scrutiny.
But it's the District Attorney of New York County and its offices that
get an unexpected shock. It turns out the victim was not who he
claimed. He was from Phoenix, Arizona and for reasons we'll never know
stole the identity of a man from New York City and faked all his
credentials for the bar and was hired by the District Attorney.
According to Sam Waterston who knew him or thought he did, his late
colleague's work was superlative and no one would ever had any reason
to question him.
It all leads back to an Organized Crime case that the late victim
worked on and dropped several years earlier. Two button guys from the
Mafia, street names Biscuits and Books figure prominently in this case
which involves an underboss in one of the Mafia families.
The late victim did leave a couple of cryptic clues in the file of that
old case that he stripped. It's quite a maze where the DA is doing as
much investigative work as the police. I think you'll like the result.
