Storyline

Lottie Mason is a police vice cop who has just the right looks to be a decoy for the whore-mungers on the streets of Los Angeles. She seems to always be where the action is whether it be vice or drugs. While she is attempting to help Stan, the District Attorney, set-up a drug buy with a witness he needs for another case, they seem to have mutual attraction in each other. Lt. Joe Morgan has the hots for her, but she cant stand him. Written by Richard Jones <rjo339@swbell.net>

Crackling good police yarn...
18 August 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

A female undercover cop, overworked, exhausted and ready for a break, gets seduced one night into a short walk on the wild side, but it may prove to be her undoing. Well-directed cop thriller isn't a blockbuster, nor is it capable of really expanding its perimeters on the basis of a slight budget, but filmmaker Sondra Locke gets fine performances from her cast, particularly Theresa Russell, exuding palpable street-glamor in the lead, and handsome George Dzundza as her lieutenant. I have never been an admirer of creepy-eyed Jeff Fahey's work (he always seems hyped up for little purpose), but he isn't too distracting here. Little-seen picture is perfect late-night TV fodder; nothing overly substantial or imaginative, but tightly-wound and involving. **1/2 from ****
