Synopsis
It's 1948, and Tom Spellacy is a formerly corrupt Los Angeles police detective who is investigating two murders: One of a priest who died in a house of prostitution, and the other of a woman found dead in a park. During his investigation, Tom discovers a web of corruption that involves prostitution, pornography, the police department, and the local Catholic Church. Tom's brother Monsignor Des Spellacy has been dealing with a dishonest contractor who he hopes will help finance the expansion of his church. Tom has to deal with his brother's questionable ethical decisions while trying to solve the two murders.
