Best SVU Episode Yet, In My Opinion
4 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Not only do you learn a great deal about electronic equipment and other technical aspects, but the plot is masterfully crafted, with many twists and turns. Your interest never wanes. The detectives' investigations often turn on the minutest pieces of evidence, found either by accident or good hard police work, take your pick. The drama and suspense never waver and build up until the final breathless half-minute. The only thing missing is Det. Olivia Benson being decorated for sticking with a case that her colleagues were all too ready to give up on, and persevering until a child's life was saved -- and one more minute could have been too late.
