Sideline hobby
24 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Initially the detectives get it wrong in this Law And Order story. For the brutal torture murder of an escort they arrest Adam Driver who is a medical lab technician with some delusions about being a doctor. But in fact other evidence points to Daniel Eric Gold who is a brilliant graduate student with a sideline hobby of torture and murder of women. To Gold, the escorts he picks up are like the lab rats Driver works with.

Gold is brilliant and clever and he's got an attorney in Timothy Busfield of whom the same can be said. Linus Roache barely pulls this one over the goal line.

An interesting story about a perpetrator who thinks he's just so much more clever than the rest of the herd.
