When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
In Phoenix, Arizona, all is not well at the local police station as some of the colleagues are not good of heart. Superstitious cop Harry Collins is on the take. He a compulsive gambler who is forced to plan a heist with fellow cops Mike, James, and Fred to rip off local pimp and overall bad guy, Louie, to pay off gambling debts run up with "bookie" Chicago.

I, too, had never heard of this movie. I never saw it advertised, and I never saw it at theaters. I happened to stumble on this on cable one night. Man, what an excellent movie. A dark, brooding movie of desperation and corruption. Ray Liotta is as good as I've ever seen him, and Anthony LaPaglia nearly steals the movie with his portrayal of an evil, brutal cop, whom you will hope and pray you never cross paths with. Just an excellent little movie that, it appears, not too many people knew about. Very well done!
