(IBList user synopsis):
Jake Danser, a suave, high-profile forensic psychologist, cheats on his wealthy wife, Elizabeth, with Sara Johnson, a public defender. He has been retained as an expert defense witness for Dillard, who is accused of strangling his wife, a flirt Danser once knew. Though he breaks things off with Sara, Elizabeth, who has suspected him of being serially unfaithful for a long time, demands a separation. After a party where he has a steamy encounter with a woman, she turns up dead in her apartment, strangled with his necktie. The police arrest him for the murder, but let him go while they build their case. The D.A., Minor Robinson, who has a romantic history with Elizabeth, may have an ulterior motive for prosecuting him. Is Danser, who has a history of blackouts, the killer? Or is someone else intimately connected to the case the culprit?
