James Woods and Brian Dennehy team up for an unlikely partnership as they face off against a death-dealing financier in this tense, gripping thriller that fascinates with its action, suspense and brutal honesty. Veteran L.A. police Lieutenant Meechum (Dennehy) is also a successful novelist - who happens to have serious writer's block. Cleve (Woods) is a former hit man who's ready to remedy that situation by telling all to Meechum in what's certain to be an all-time best-seller. Yet Meechum is more interested in justice than royalties, and is prepared to send Cleve to prison for life. But when a startling revelation leaves him no choice, Meechum puts pen to paper in a shocking expose that could bring down one of the city's most corrupt organisations...but only if he and Cleve aren't brought down first!
