Storyline

What does it take to trust? Melanie Hudson is an L.A. police officer, a loner on the trail of a serial killer who slits the throats of beautiful women just after they have made love. Mel is independent and curious; at night, she drives the streets. Her partner on the force is her ex-lover, Nathan, who still loves her. Their prime suspect is Connor Ashcroft, the playboy son of a powerful U.S. Senator. They investigate him; he's unconcerned and comes on to Melanie. They also interview Connor's former girlfriends and a family shrink. Evidence suggests he's innocent, so Melanie takes Connor up on his invitation; Nathan is jealous and he's worried. Whom should Melanie trust? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not that exciting,but great acting
15 November 2004 | by (Wuppertal,Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie may not be the most exciting I've ever seen because you can guess the identity of the killer within the first few minutes.But what makes it interesting is the performance of John Allen Nelson as the crime suspect Connor Ashcroft.The role of a playboy,who obviously is irresistible to women,fits him absolutely perfect.He plays both this erotic component as well as his dark side more than convincing.I can think of no one who could present it better! The performance of Joan Severance as Detective Melanie Hudson isn't quite as convincing.No doubt she's a good actress,but you just don't believe her to be a tough cop.So good acting is not enough sometimes. All in all the movie is worth watching it,I'll give it 7 out of 10.
