The strangest kind of murderer
6 July 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Law And Order episode concerns the murder of an aspiring journalist who in fact was found in all kinds of come hither hooker paraphernalia. The young woman barely into her Twenties was undercover doing research on one of the Latino gangs in New York. A job dangerous enough for undercover cops. You have to believe she truly didn't know what she was getting into.

But dead she got and Dennis Farina and Jesse Martin turn up the strangest kind of murderer. A wealthy real estate broker who seemingly has no motive played by William Sadler. And he refuses to give any information to help his case.

I can't go too much into the reasons, but they have to do with his incarcerated son. The son is played by Brad Fleischer and he's got himself in a drug related jackpot, thank you Rockefeller drug laws. He's also a spoiled rich kid in way over his head.

The performances are good, but this episode was one I really could not buy into.
