A beautiful and popular model is murdered. Another dead woman is found stuffed into a closet, and Davenport is on the case! With each new murder the case becomes more confusing, and Davenport must race to find the killer or killers, before more people are murdered. An old girlfriend comes back into his life, wanting more than friendship,he becomes involved with a beautiful woman he is trying to protect,and finds that it may possible to start seeing Weather again.
