Extortionist Jake Farley is found strangled, and the clues lead directly to former detective Joe Paris, who insists on his innocence but can't provide an alibi. Public defendant Jenny Hudson gets the case, but has problems unravelling the case, complicated by the fact that virtually everyone hated Farley, and Paris has a few enemies as well. She rejects the prosecution's offers to plea bargain, but meanwhile the witnesses she finds are discredited or silenced, and an unidentified patrol car shadows Paris and Hudson wherever they go.Written by

The film was a Columbia Pictures release in the United States and Canada, with Rank Film Distributors Ltd. handling foreign distribution. It was one of the motion pictures made as a result of a venture producer Martin Ransohoff formed in 1986 with Columbia Pictures, Rank Film Distributors Ltd., and Vestron Video. See more »
When Theresa Russell slides down the stairs headfirst in the climax of the film, she is clearly wearing knee pads. See more »
I have always liked Burt Reynolds. He did a great job in any role he was in. To me he has always made a very convincing police officer, going back to Dan August. The story is very good. The cast is well rounded. The bonus is you get to see two attractive attractive women, Kay Lenz and Theresa Russell.
