Detective Danny Frater arrives at the apartment where his estranged daughter Christina's body was found, and manages to find his way inside. As he carries out a search, he is startled to discover a young woman hiding in the bedroom. Although she does her best to escape, Danny manages to prevent her and forces her to answer his questions. She turns out to be Christina's wife, Nicola, and their subsequent conversation reveals as much about Danny's estrangement from his daughter as it does Christina's increasingly dark and complicated life.

Bruised by his encounter with Nicola, Danny goes to The Crimson Orchid gentlemen's club to look for Maia, who Nicola has accused of corrupting Christina. Maia stonewalls Danny's questions, but when he tells her that Christina may have been murdered, her façade of indifference cracks. Danny knows that Christina was involved in criminal activity, and he assumes Maia has lured her into prostitution, but in the face of her angry denials, he realises that Christina was selling drugs.
