Ryder Hart is a disgraced ex-cop who is now a low-rent private investigator. His estranged wife, Anita, runs the Sunset Grill and is now involved with Jeff a police detective who used to work with Ryder. When Anita is found brutally murdered, Ryder and Jeff team-up to find her killer.

During their investigation, Ryder and Jeff meet Harrison Shelgrove, a wealthy industrialist who owns a gun club. Loren, an employee at the club, seems to take an unusual amount of interest in Ryder. As Ryder gets closer to the truth, he begins to suspect that a crooked INS agent, Stockton, may know something about the case. What began as a search for the murderer of his wife, has lead Ryder into a mystery involving illegal immigrants in Los Angeles. Written by
