Trivia

Like many "Law & Order" stories, this "ripped-from-the-headlines" episode has some basis in reality. The flamboyant murder victim here possesses many characteristics of the late hotel magnate Leona Helmsley (1920-1997), who was tarred by the Manhattan media with the nickname "The Queen of Mean." Although Helmsley served prison time (for tax evasion and mail fraud), she was released and died of natural causes at home, splitting her vast fortune among many worthy charities, family members ... and her Maltese dog Trouble.

Master Manipulator

When Judith Roberts is killed in her bathtub there are few mourning her. This thinly veiled caricature of Leona Helmsley bragged like Ed Koch that she didn't get ulcers, she gave them to all around her. Most especially her volatile daughter Amy Ryan who inherits the luxury flagship hotel and the chain around it that she inherits.

Vincent Donofrio and Kathryn Erbe go off in a few directions to get the answers. Ryan is a creature of impulse and the murder of her mother shows a bit of planning. Someone set her off, was it her fiancé Michael Hayden or her father Hal Linden or someone else like her hairdresser David Drake who gave her botox which was an ingredient of the crime.

Women do tell the beautician things they never confide to someone else so Drake is a suspect. He gives a nice performance of a hairdresser caught in a jackpot he hadn't the faintest notion about until it happened.

Eventually Ryan is given some consideration in the police effort to get evidence on the mastermind. The scheme gets way out of hand.
