Overview

True Stories of Law & Order reveals the fascinating and shocking facts behind 25 of the hit show's most popular episodes - from the incredible account of how a woman's repressed memory leads to the solving of a 30-year-old cold case to the high-profile investigation of tranvestite millionaire Robert Durst. And just like in Law & Order, the actual crime is just the beginning, as you follow these cases from the initial stages of the investigation through the trial and up to the often controversial verdicts.

Part of the reason millions of fans tune in to Law & Order is the gritty realism of its storytelling. The monumentally popular show has included many episodes inspired by actual cases ripped from the headlines - true crimes that are often stranger and more chilling than fiction.
