Trivia

The drug dealer who gives the detectives information on their murder case in exchange for a deal was caught with 1/4th of an ounce of cocaine, which equals 7.09 grams. Without a plea deal he would be facing a charge of Criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree, a non-violent class B felony with a minimum prison sentence of 1-3 years and a maximum of 25 years; though considering his extensive previous criminal record he would be looking at much more than 1-3 years as a minimum sentence, more like 8-1/3 years.

What a love life
5 October 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

A Marilyn Chambers/Georgina Spelvin type porn star is found shot to death with what is most likely her own licensed weapon from California and Dennis Farina and Michael Imperioli catch the case. This was the first of several episodes where Imperioli temporarily partners with Farina while Jesse Martin was filming Rent.

The gun is found and turned over to Farina and Imperioli who eventually make an arrest of Randy Page the publisher of a tell all book that the deceased had written. Then Page is shot to death.

Who gets increasingly more involved in this case is a former Police Commissioner Kevin Dunn who is up for a big time job with Homeland Security. He's got a lot of connections. To both women as well.

This was not one of the better episodes in the series. The second murder of Page was an incredibly stupid act. You'll see if you watch the episode.
