When one of easily aroused officer Michael Harris (as Jack Ramsey)'s sexual conquests turns up strangled, he becomes a prime suspect. It's apparent (to viewers) that Mr. Harris is being framed, as the killings continue. Harris' police pal Brion James (as Ben McCarthy), who recovers from hangovers exceptionally well, is an odd ball; perhaps, he is involved? Victim's sister Carrie-Anne Moss (as Jane Tanner), who can be roughed-up before sex (with Harris, anyway), has a secret; perhaps, she is involved? Or, is it someone else? The killer's identity is almost as explicit as the sex. Whatever those dopers paid Johnny Medina (as Manny Ortega) wasn't enough.
