They shouldn't have put him in the water, if they didn't want him to make waves.

Coming from a police family, Tom Hardy ends up fighting his uncle after the murder of his father. Tom believes the killer is another cop, and goes on the record with his allegations. Demoted to water-way duty Tom, along with new partner Jo Christman, navigate the three rivers looking for clues and discovering bodies. This time the victims are women Tom knows, he must find the killer to prove his innocence.

Tödliche Nähe

Der Frauenmörder von Pittsburgh ist gefaßt. Bürger und Polizei atmen auf. Doch Officer Hardy vom Morddezernat hat seine eigene Theorie: Der Falsche sitzt hinter Gittern, der Serienkiller muß, nach allen Indizien, ein Cop sein! Hardy, der Cop mit der großen Klappe, wird zur Wasserschutzpolizei strafversetzt. Zwei Jahre vergehen, bis erneut reihenweise junge Frauen in Pittsburgh bestialisch ermordet werden. Stets in Hardys Revier, alles Mädchen aus seinem engsten Umfeld.

Impatto imminente

Figlio di un poliziotto ucciso, uno sbirro turbolento dà la caccia all'assassino di papà mentre un serial killer gli elimina man mano le sue ex fidanzate. Con un livello di simpatia nettamente inferiore alla sua media, B. Willis si barcamena in questo poliziesco di ordinaria violenza urbana.
