Jimbo Slade is a suspect in a number of Seattle rape-murders. When he turns his attentions to the shy, teenage daughter of Jack Baird, Jack takes matters into his own hands. As Baird slowly wins Slade's trust, he finds himself sharing Slade's lifestyle, cruising the city's sewers, lying to his family and the cops. He knows he can trust no one--not with what he has planned for Slade.
