A murder took place in a multicultural neighborhood, inhabited by orthodox Jews, black people and punk rock white guys. There is an artist commune owned by an old rock star who played at Woodstock and now works as a manager looking for new rookies. It's easy to figure out that the loft is a dirty place full of bugs where tenants spend time by playing guitar, having sex and smoking weed. One day, a wannabe rock star is stabbed to death just outside a close pub and shortly after another musician is shoved in elevator shaft. There must have been too much competition inside the commune or a groupie should have shifted less bed than she actually did, paying more attention to her pillow talks. Anyway Nichols managed to take some DNA evidence from bug stings that helped him to solve the case.

Jeff Goldlum takes the place of Chris Noth as the senior detective and he performs a pondering character similar to the first Seth Brundle (prior to mutation in "The Fly") and to scientist David Levinson (Independence Day)
