Joan Lambert is living the LA dream turned nightmare. A dead rich girl, nine missing women, a stray dog and a missing ten-year-old boy are interlaced in her high-profile Hollywood case. Her own demons include a raging, stalking ex, her dark past and a career as an elite homicide investigator that's balancing on a high-wire in the circus spotlight of the movie and music industry. If it weren't for her partner, Gus VanChek, a movie buff and psuedo-enlightened life coach, she'd be a goner. In this very unlikely scenario, love appears in the form of curly-haired Italian surfer/environmentalist who shows up at an S and M club during an undercover investigation. Then Joan is taken hostage on a ride on the highway to hell with the most brutal of female villians that, ironically, delivers a clue that could break the case. This action-packed noir-ish Hollywood tale reveals the true color of fear and the horror of ego gone bad.
