Storyline

Derien McCall, a nightmare-plagued ex-cop turned private investigator, takes an odd assignment from Anthea, the wife of a wealthy real-estate magnate, Michael Ferrow-Smith: to flirt with him and see if he expresses interest. Her emotions quickly take over and the flirting becomes more than that. Derien conducts an affair with Michael and breaks off the client relationship with Anthea, but a desperate call from Anthea brings Derien to Michael's house late one night. What's going on, Derien wonders, has she been set up? If so, by whom? Can she solve the crime, avoid imprisonment, and rid herself of the demons of her past? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trashy, dark fun!
29 January 2003 | by (Wasington DC) – See all my reviews

True 50's style, hard-boiled pulp fiction with a up to date spin. I don't agree with the reviewers that mentioned the paraffin test. She opened the breach of a-just- fired-shotgun and handled the spent shell. You would have gunpowder all over you hands from doing so and thus fail a paraffin test. Maybe the movie is just a bit smarter than some of the people that right these reviews! It was a fun cable movie. and didn't need to be much more.
