A boat has been destroyed, criminals are dead, and the key to this mystery lies with the only survivor and his twisted, convoluted story beginning with five career crooks in a seemingly random police lineup.
Susan Morrison is getting married to wealthy industrialist Rick Barnes. Danny, her teenage son with ex-husband Frank, isn't happy about this; he stows away in Rick's car one night, planning to go to Frank's house. But while there, he witnesses Rick murdering mysterious stranger Ray Coleman. Problem is, Rick's managed to dispose of most of the evidence, and he's considered a pillar of the community, while Danny has a history of lying. Frank believes him, though, and does some investigating of his own, as Rick's shady past slowly catches up to him and his new family. Written by

A perfect example of the type of film where every character has to keep acting like an idiot to keep the movie going. Because if at any point in the film anyone did anything logical or sensible, the story would be over. A man is stabbed in a car and the killer wipes up all the blood with one piece of tissue paper. The police, of course, find nothing. When the body is cremated the police decide not to waste time with an actual investigation. When the boy who witnessed the killing is questioned, the police allow the man he has accused to be in the room with them during the interrogation. The killer has become a prominent business man in town apparently without anyone ever doing even the simpliest background check on this guy. When Travolta finally gets around to looking into this guy's background he does on his computer and in about two minutes finds out the man is a criminal.
A real waste of a talented cast. The real shame is thinking about all the great scripts lying on shelves somewhere while this awful film got produced and a major release.
