Passably fun detective story with reprising his role as the cinema’s only openly gay detective, and Ron Oliver contributing better direction than was seen in Ice Blues.  Allen gets caught up in a nasty situation when he is paid to follow a woman who turns out to be an undercover police officer. His partner () helps out when an older couple (, ) find themselves being harassed by members of their home town who don’t like lesbians in the neighbourhood. Could the two cases be connected? And could the appearance of Spence’s old flame (, no relation) be more than just coincidence? The proceedings could definitely be a lot juicier, but it’s nothing you’ll regret either.
