Glamorous TV star Jan Warden is found gruesomely murdered in her bed. In her climb to fame, she has made plenty of enemies and the police are not short of suspects. It has fallen to Ivor and Sue Maddox and their LAPD colleagues to solve the murder, which they must do under intense media pressure.
Crime never sleeps in LA though, and alongside this high-profile case they must investigate a rapist attacking solitary women, two girls kidnapped into prostitution and a knife fight at a wedding reception.
