When a striptease dancer is brutally murdered in Las Vegas, detective Rita Cates and her partner, J.D. Prejon, are assigned to the case. There is not much evidence available, but what they have points to Sam McKeon, an ex-cop. This puts Rita in a difficult position, because she and Sam previously had a scalding affair, which ultimately led to her husband's suicide. They have not spoken since then, but Rita could never get Sam out of her mind. During the investigation, they resume their affair, although Rita is constantly torn between trust and distrust, and attempting to keep an open mind. Eventually she has to choose, knowing that the wrong choice may get her killed.
