Keyes, a private investigator, is waiting to meet a business contact in a down-town bar when he overhears a domestic murder being planned in the adjacent booth. When the intended victim shows up at his office she is not the sadistic call-girl that he'd expected ... far from it! Keyes' fascination with the distressed beauty draws him into a web of double-talk and misleading circumstances in this, another gripping and tensely plotted Chance thriller.
