Storyline

In steamy, sexy, sultry New Orleans, a police detective doesn't know whether to arrest his prime suspect or make love to her after he unexpectedly finds himself in a passionate and torrid affair with an accused killer in this erotic thriller. Assigned to investigate the beautiful owner of a lingerie company implicated in a heinous crime, an unwitting cop becomes trapped in a tangled web of murder, deception and lust. As the investigation (and desire between suspect and cop) heats up, the detective begins to believe his lover's story of innocence. Despite mounting evidence, the cop decides to do whatever it takes, including break the law, to help the woman prove she is innocent of murder. Written by Anonymous

Avoid at ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
31 March 2001 | by katlb97See all my reviews

Oh my goodness, this movie is the reason why books should not be made into movies. This is one of the worse movies I have ever seen. The casting was horrible. Who was in charge of this, I don't know, they just never read the book (which I loved, btw). The acting stunk to high heaven, the script was worse, I wish this movie had never been made. Lucci was horrible. I really do not believe this woman acts- if she does- not very well. When will she ever act a role her own age, too? This role was supposed to go to an actress who was 30 years in age, not 45 to 50 and looking it. My advice is, skip this movie altogether, and read the book if you have some time. Other than that, find another, better movie to watch. AVOID THIS MOVIE AT ALL COST. IT'S ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES OF ALL TIME!!!!!
