Storyline

Det. Sgt. Max Greevy and Det. Mike Logan investigate an attack on a man, Drew MacDaniel, found in a park after having had one of his kidneys surgically removed without his knowledge. They check with the national organ transplant registry and find that it cannot account for a kidney that was delivered to a local hospital and transplanted into Joanna Woodleigh, daughter of the very rich and politically connected Philip Woodleigh. The transplant surgeon and his nurse assistant deny having any knowledge of where the the kidney came from. ADA Stone however gets them to testify against Philip Woodleigh who, it seems, was prepared to do anything to save his daughter. Written by garykmcd

What price a kidney
17 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

If you were a rich and as well connected as Fritz Weaver is in this Law And Order episode you might just have the money and chutzpah to pull off the great kidney robbery of New York.

Chuck Cooper wakes up one morning in a public park in Manhattan missing a kidney. George Dzundza and Chris Noth investigate a ring that traffics in human body parts and doesn't really care where they get them. But why specifically Cooper's kidney?

Because it was a match for Weaver's daughter and being the rich powerful person he is, why Cooper can get by with only one.

Weaver seems like a gracious genteel old society patron who Michael Moriarty has to prosecute. Of course investigation does reveal he's got a nasty side to him.

An interesting episode with interesting issues raised.
