The city of New Orleans is horrified when Sandra Lee Dawson, a beautiful and popular chat show hostess is brutally murdered. Investigator Bobby Marsh ( Miami Vice's Phillip Michael Thomas ) and his lover, assistant attorney Lynn Jacobi ( Phylicia Rashad – The Cosby Show ), are called in to get to the bottom of the attack. Lynn and Bobby's investigations to two conflicting paths. Soon loyalty and respect for one another becomes betrayal and suspicion. Bobby is certain that the controversial star not only preached the joys of casual sex on her show but practiced them from her favorite steamy singles bar. Lynn however believes Sandra Lees attacker is someone more eminent-a man with the power to heal and the will to destroy.
