Plot Summary

When a woman is mysteriously killed in the small coastal town of Eden Landing, Police Chief Abel Marsh (James Garner) investigates. Initially, he's inclined to believe the town rumor that she was killed by her own Doberman Pinscher. But as Abel digs deeper he uncovers a complex network of connections between the dead girl and virtually everyone else in their tiny community. Faced with an ever-widening number of suspects, Abel consoles himself by sleeping with the prettiest (Katharine Ross).
