Storyline

Detectives Cyrus Lupo and Kevin Bernard are called in to investigate the death of a young heiress, Annie Douglas, who died of an apparent drug overdose. The detectives begin to suspect her cousin, Randy, whose inheritance was increased due to Annie's death. As the investigation continues, Annie's greedy relatives reveal another recent loss in the group. The case becomes more than a family matter as an experimental cancer clinic, fraudulent adoptions and unborn children are tied into the case. Written by NBC Publicity

The DA's office is flummoxed
24 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Law And Order story mostly concentrates on the law part as Linus Roache, Alana DeLa Garza and Sam Waterston are on to a scheme that smells to the high heaven. But how to go about figuring out who is guilty of what and then prosecute them for what.

A drug overdose of a young woman who was the potential inheritor of millions gets to the investigation of a controversial cancer clinic where there's a scheme to make sure rich folks like the young overdose victim's grandfather die in calendar year 2010. Too bad I didn't have a rich relative that died and left me a fortune that year. For whatever reason a change in the tax code left beneficiaries inheritance tax free. Anyone who was a powerball lottery winner in 2009 and died in 2010 made a lot heirs happy.

This one comes fast and furious and the DA's office tries to figure out who to prosecute. The dead folks were all at a controversial cancer clinic headed by Mark-Linn Baker who eschews chemotherapy. He's getting a lot of referrals from accountant Damian Young and he becomes the center of things.

I'm not sure there's murder here. Certainly one incredible fraud scheme. I give the Law And Order writers points for creativity, but I think they overreached.
