Donna Deitch’s feature follow-up to her groundbreaking lesbian classic DESERT HEARTS is a stylishly sexy thriller in which LA police officer Melanie Hudson (Joan Severance) roams the city while trying to track down a Jack the Ripper–esque serial killer who slits women’s throats after sex. Among the suspects is Connor Ashcroft (John Allen Nelson), a senator’s son with whom she gradually becomes romantically involved. The evidence seems to suggest that Connor is innocent—but is Melanie walking into danger?
