Ryder Hart is a disgraced ex-cop who is now a low-rent private investigator. His estranged wife, Anita, runs the Sunset Grill and is now involved with Jeff a police detective who used to work with Ryder. When Anita is found brutally murdered, Ryder and Jeff team-up to find her killer. The case appears to be related to an immigrant who worked at the Sunset Grill and an old friend of Ryder's named Guillermo. During their investigation, Ryder and Jeff meet Harrison Shelgrove, a wealthy industrialist who owns a gun club. Loren, an employee at the club, seems to take an unusual amount of interest in Ryder. As Ryder gets closer to the truth, he begins to suspect that a crooked INS agent, Stockton, may know something about the case. What began as a search for the murderer of his wife, has lead Ryder into a mystery involving illegal immigrants in Los Angeles. Written by
Disgraced cop Ryder Hart (Peter Weller) is a low-rent private investigator. His estranged wife Anita (Alexandra Paul) runs the Sunset Grill and dating police detective Jeff. Ryder won't give her a divorce. Anita is murdered by thugs looking for busboy Ricardo. There is a letter from former bar worker Guillermo who was murdered in Tijuana. Ryder finds barcodes in the letter. Harrison Shelgrove (Stacy Keach) deals in Mexican oil and owns a gun club where Loren (Lori Singer) works. There is also crooked INS agent Stockton (Jonathan Rhys-Davies). Joanna Ramirez is Stockton's upright partner. Ryder starts looking for Guillermo but he's soon confronted by thugs.
Ryder is a low-rent P.I. and this is a low-rent crime drama. Director Kevin Connor does a lot of TV movies and that's what this feels like. The interesting talents try to make this a little better but it doesn't have the intensity. Peter Weller tries his hard-boiled best. It looks and feels like a B-movie. The story moves too slowly. By the midway point, I want Ryder to start connecting the dots. Instead, the plot becomes a convoluted mess of indecipherable turns.
