Taste for sadism
14 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A passed note and a conversation in Romanian to a fellow countryman sends SVU on a hunt for a missing Romanian immigrant who never showed up at college for the classes she registered for.

It's a pretty slim lead and Dann Florek is ready to pull the squad off the case when the missing woman's aunt is found dead after being dumped on the Henry Hudson Parkway. Now the NYPD is very interested.

The trail leads to white shoe lawyer Andrew McCarthy who with his wife is keeping the young woman both a prisoner and a slave. McCarthy is one cool customer himself, establishment preppy type with a nasty taste for sadism.

McCarthy is one of the scariest villains SVU ever featured. Try not miss him in this SVU story.
