The Inside Man

The Robbery

EAfter finding John Holmes's palm print at the house on Wonderland Avenue, police need to determine if the porn actor was a witness to the murders – or a participant. But what Detectives Tom Lange and Bob Souza really want to know is if Holmes will give up Eddie Nash. They’re confident Nash ordered the murders in retaliation for a home invasion robbery at his place two days earlier. If John doesn’t cooperate with police he could face the death penalty. But if he does, he could face something even worse…Eddie Nash. You can support this show by supporting our sponsors.

Revenge

Capture

ELAPD detectives arrest fugitive John Holmes in Miami and bring him back to Los Angeles, where he is charged with the four Wonderland murders. But convicting him will be difficult, since the prosecution’s key witnesses are victim Susan Launius, who can’t remember anything, and two drug addicts with long criminal records. As Detective Lange says, "When a crime occurs in hell, you don't have angels for witnesses."
