Plot InvolvementsEdit

As a police lieutenant, Poovey gets on well with private eye Archer, but not especially well with their partner, Figgis. They helped Archer rescue the whores which the mobster, Len Trexler, was smuggling into the country and for which Figgis had been paid off to allow in. Being of good character, they help the whores hide out at their apartment, on condition that the whores cook and clean for them. Having shot three of Trexler's goons they are deeply involved in Trexler's subsequent manhunt - in more ways than one: along with Figgis, they are ironically compelled by Trexler to hunt for themself and Archer.
