Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A prominent African-American political leader is assassinated at a Harlem rally. Witnesses to the killing point their fingers at Mitchell Kobin (Jeff Gendelman), a white teacher. Contrary to first impressions, Kobin may not have been motivated by racism; the dead man was allegedly having an affair with the teacher's wife. This episode of Law & Order was the winner of the Edgar Allan Poe award, an honor bestowed by the Mystery Writers of America.
