Goren and Eames try to unravel a deadly mystery after an elderly woman dies in a fire and bequeaths some of her estate to a young woman who is subsequently murdered. Soon their investigation turns to a shady state public administrator who has re-invented the concept of "grave-robbing." Goren discovers the suspect's weakness for expensive collector cars, but to make the case succeed in court, he might also need to exploit his quarry's personal relationships. Written by Anonymous

9 November 2007 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

The guest stars of this episode, Dennis Christopher and Paul Dooley, play son and father (respectively). This pairing of actors will probably ring a bell with many viewers. It should, because it's a veritable blast from the past. It's also an homage to a very popular movie of yesteryear. Paul Dooley and Dennis Christopher played father and son once before, you see. Think back to 1979 -- and the sleeper hit, BREAKING AWAY. Their indelible pairing in that movie is now evoked a generation later in this episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, in which they play family members whose fortunes revolve not around the wheels of bicycles, as in BREAKING AWAY, but the wheels of costly sports cars -- and the inexorable turning of the wheels of justice.
