The lead detective on an arson investigation becomes a hero and is given a promotion when he saves a hostage. But when his partner is assassinated and he enlists the aid of a kindly prostitute to help him find the killers he discovers a conspiracy which may shake the department to its core.
When police detective Jack Flinder and his partner Art investigate a series of arson attacks, they come too close to the truth and Art is ruthlessly murdered. The only witness to the execution is Art's girlfriend, Lisa, and she teams up with Flinder in order to catch the killer and revenge Art's death. However, the more they learn about the arsons, the more their own lives are at stake -- especially when it turns out that the murderers are stationed right inside the police department.
