Storyline

Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of one-time supermodel Christine Sandal who is found dead by her next door neighbor Craig Holland who was waiting for her to arrive for a surprise party he was hosting in her honor. Holland tells the police she had epilepsy but the medical examiner is doubtful having found no evidence of a seizure. There was bruising on her upper arms however. Blood evidence leads them to believe a close relative was also at the crime scene and they focus on her son Douglas Burke. A canceled bank check however leads them to Sonja Harlann who turns out to have a special relationship with the dead model. When she's charged with murder it turns out that her lawyer may also be her co-conspirator in an attempt to claim a very large inheritance. Written by garykmcd

Jack McCoy: [sheepishly] Good for her.
A.D.A. Jamie Ross: And Silverman collects his 17 million dollar fee. No wonder everybody hates the legal profession.
Jack McCoy: [pause] Make sure Douglas Burke gets a full transcript of Sonja Harland's allocution. This way there'll be something to collect when he sues her and Mr Silverman for his mother's wrongful death.
D.A. Adam Schiff: [wryly] Lawyers!
