|Karen McClaren encounters “John” (an alias of Kent Grainger) at the Whisky a Go Go. She gives him her number after he offers to help her career as a journalist. Afterward, Kent dedicates a song on the radio to a girl, Emily Fuentes, then brutally murders her. Detectives Jack Roth and Paco Contreras are assigned the case and are told that the killer had sex with the victim after she died. The next night, Kent meets Betty Beaumontaine, but refrains from killing her after finding out she’s a single mother. The two begin to bond over their mutual abandonment and sociopathic tendencies. Meanwhile, Jack is having an affair with undercover cop Dianne Kubek, who is working on the Sunset Strip as a drug dealer. Kent invites Karen to a Billy Idol concert at the Whisky. At another crime scene, Karen and her boss, Diver Hawkes, attempt to photograph the scene but are caught by the police. Karen tells them that she saw Emily on the night she died, and Jack requests that she help identify the killer at the Billy Idol concert. Betty tells Kent that she can’t make it to the concert because of work, which angers him. At the concert, Jack meets up with Karen and states that “John” is likely the murderer. Jack is then informed that the radio station has just had a dedication made for Karen, who has subsequently gone missing. Betty shows up at the Whisky, and she and Kent leave with another unfortunate girl in tow.|
