The Alcove Agenda: The big screen adaptation of one of Lt. Eve Dallas' strangest cases, is being filmed on location and Dallas and her partner, Delia Peabody, find themselves on set watching the filming. All things considered, Dallas finds the world of movie magic to be even stranger than crime fighting. Watching actress Marlo Durn, performing before the camera, pretending to be Eve, investigating a crime scene that the real Dallas had once been in charge of, is surreal and frankly a little creepy. But Mason Roundtree, the director, is a stickler for authenticity, and he's sparing no expense recreating the case, using journalist Nadine Furst's blockbuster book as the source for his blockbuster movie. So with so much attention to detail, it's a pity the woman chosen to play Peabody has a personality so diametrically opposite that of the ever cheerful, warm-hearted detective. So much so that it's only a slight pity to most her fellow actors when KT. Harris turns up dead.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she's managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It's a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director's luxury building. Now she's at the center of a crime scene-and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster and step into the role she was born to play: cop.
