A Los Angeles psychiatrist testifies for the prosecution in the trial of an accused child molester. Later the defendant, who is out on bail, is found dead in the psychiatrist's office, in what appears to be a suicide. Shaken, the psychiatrist moves to the mountains outside of L.A. Not long afterwards a detective he knows comes to him for help. A seven-year-old girl saw someone kill both of her parents, but is so traumatized by the event that she can't remember anything, and the detective wants the doctor to help jar her memory. Soon, however, the doctor and the detective discover that the parents' murder and the pedophiles "suicide" may be linked to a shadowy group of wealthy and influential pedophiles, and that the child isn't the only one whose life is in danger.

In this film, Ted Danson and Richard Masur play characters who work together to bust a ring of child molesters. Both had previously played child molesters themselves: Danson in "Something About Amelia" (1984) and Masur in "Fallen Angel" (1981). See more »
During the chase scene where the black motorcycle is in pursuit of the tan BMW, one segment clearly shows the rear window of the car as having been blown out yet one of the following segments which was shot from inside the car shows the whole window actually disintegrating after being hit by a shot fired from the motorcycle in pursuit.

This movie based upon the Jonathan Kellerman novel of the same name(which introduced the Alex Delaware character) is an outstanding work. The characters are true to the novel, the interaction between Ted Danson's Delaware and Richard Masur's Milo is at times humorous and others deadly serious.
In a bit of Irony, Danson played a Child Psycologist and in the movie "There's Something About Amelia" Danson portrayed a child molester.
