Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio,
A retired ex-cop and private detective (Newman) who lives with a rich actor (Hackman) who is dying from cancer and his actress wife (Sarandon) gets mixed up in murder when he is asked to deliver blackmail money. He walks into a 20 year old case involving the mysterious disappearance of the actress's former husband. James Garner appears as another ex-cop who also does occasional errands for the couple.

The script is weak but the acting is another story. What a cast, even if Newman is getting a little long in the tooth to be playing a P.I. Hackman, Garner and Sarandan are all very watchable as a trio of conniving types hiding a deep, dark, 20-year-old secret. You can pretty much guess what it is early on, but the reason for seeing this thriller is not for the plot but to watch four veterans in action.
