JACK MORGAN, head of Private Investigations, a global agency for the rich and famous, is being pushed to the limit. His car has been firebombed, his ex is dating someone else, and his twin brother is still out to destroy him.
But Private doesn’t rest, and nor do its clients: not the LAPD who need Private’s help catching two scumbags with diplomatic immunity, and not the client who has just confessed to murdering his wife. Add to that Jack’s best friend being held on a trumped-up charge that could see him locked away for a very long time, and it seems that all bets are off…

It looks like a simple case of Trunk Music – a Mafia hit, the victim shot in his own vehicle – but the LAPD’s organised Crime Unit is curiously uninterested.
