When the remains of a young woman are found buried in an apartment courtyard with a collar and leash, Detectives Benson and Stabler determine that the dead woman is Ava Parulis, a Romanian immigrant who was brought to the United States for an arranged marriage. They discover from Ava's estranged twin, Irina, that the dead woman had left her abusive husband, and made a habit of taking advantage of the riches of wealthy suitors. But when it becomes apparent that Ava may be impersonating Irina, the twins' relationships with the matchmaker who brought them to the United States, as well as with a Romanian diplomat, and the former abusive husband, may lead to the truth behind the identity crisis and the motive for murder.
