Holmes needs $40K to bail his mother out of jail and that kind of cash
doesn't come easy. A street-smart hustler who takes up solving crimes for
cash on the seedy avenues of Brooklyn, Holmes has built a name for himself
in his hood as an inside dude who’s always in the right place at the right
time, willing to do what it takes to get the job done.
tailing a Puerto Rican thug as a favor to a desperate client, Holmes
witnesses an incident that leads to the murder of a young Puerto Rican
honey, who just so happens to be the offspring of Primo Garcia, wealthy
owner of hot West Village Salsa club, Tequila Mockingbird. Primo may or
may not be running a fetishistic human trafficking circuit populated by
Puerto Rican girls with cleft palates and missing limbs. Running out of
time, low on dough, and seeing the murder as his last chance to secure his
mother’s money, Holmes decides he’ll make Primo his next client. He’ll
find his daughter’s executioner for a $40,000 pay day. But when Primo
raises the stakes by slapping a $40,000 hit on his daughter’s killer,
Holmes must decide to what depths he’s willing to dive to free his mother.
and underpaid NYPD Detective Steven Watson also has a finger on the case.
A hard-edged homicide detective with 25 years on the job and a shady
secret, Watson’s precinct has become the latest victim of corporate
downsizing. As a result, he’s been removed from the Garcia case and
hardwired to burglary due to a minus of manpower. Never one to abandon an
investigation, Watson secretly sides with young Holmes in an effort to
cinch the inside scoop on the Garcia girl’s murder. And hard-luck Holmes
could be about to make a deadly plunge off the deep end – right into an
angry beehive of perilous pimps, human traffickers, a reclusive Rye steel
tycoon…and more trouble than he ever could have fathomed.
