LAW & ORDER --(10:00PM-11:00PM) --(TV-14)
"The Dead Wives Club"
FERRY COLLISION PROVIDES COVER FOR VENGEFUL MURDER OF 9/11 WIDOW -- When a woman is found dead after a ferry collides with a Manhattan dock, Detectives Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) become suspicious when they learn that the victim sustained a blow to the head and was seen in the water just before the accident -- and the likely suspect is the ex-wife of a firefighter who left her to marry a rich "9/11" widow. But A.D.A. McCoy (Sam Waterston) soon learns that the defendant's crafty lawyer intends to position her as a victim of post-traumatic stress syndrome owing to 9/11, meaning that McCoy has to overcome extreme emotions common to every New Yorker. Elisabeth Rohm, S. Epatha Merkerson and Fred Thompson also star.
