Detective Jack Novak is weary of trying to solve yet another complicated murder investigation. His partner, Homes Kinney, has been asked by his former boss in the Roswell, Georgia, police department, to tackle the case. Kinney was the lead detective twenty years ago and it's the only case he failed to solve. The investigation involves two Atlanta sports heroes, a gorgeous jazz singer who owns her own nightclub, and a couple of hookers who were very friendly with Kinney back in the day. Everything leads them to a major Atlanta corporation with mysterious business connections worldwide. And the closer the detectives get to an answer, the closer they get to losing their own lives. There doesn't seem to be a way out until the startling climax.
