And he's long gone
When he's next to me
And I realize the blame is on me
'Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
So you put me down

PASSION MURDER BETRAYAL... JUST ANOTHER DAY ON THE JOB
Private Investigator Roland Drake falls for two sisters of the Montemar family.
One may be dead and the other wants to kill him.
In 1940's Los Angeles, Roland Drake (Thomas Konkle) cracks cases and romances femme fetales, while corrupt cops rule the underworld of the city. Drake has fallen on hard times - evicted from his office, ruined in the public eye and watched by the police. Redemption walks in - with curves - a sexy, dark haired beauty named Katherine Montemar, begging for help. The chemistry is immediate and Drake is pulled into her case - and into bed. Drake wakes up to a pool of blood where Katherine used to be. After a nervous encounter, with the skilled but unscrupulous Lew MacDonald (David Beeler). Drake is confronted by Katherine's icy blonde sister, Jennifer (Brittany Powell) - a dangerous beauty who knows more than she should about everything. Their destiny becomes entwined in a dark descent that leads them on a hunt for a priceless gem. Dogged by the corrupt police in the form of Detective Tate,(Vernon Wells) [sic] Drake must navigate a sinister world of betrayal, murder and secrets that might lay buried forever.
