A murder fraught with racial tensions could be the tension delivering event that could end up tearing Washington D.C. entirely apart.

Kevin Kellogg is a private investigator that has been living and working in the D.C. area for quite some time now. He has been in this place for a long enough amount of time that when a prominent prosecutor is murdered that he is not shocked. Perhaps a little surprised by the details of the case, but not shocked. Things like this go down in highly populated cities all of the time, and power plays are not just limited to the boardroom and the political offices.

Kellogg does end up being surprised slightly by what happens next. The prosecutor was well known in his field and black. So when a white supremacist leader gets in touch with him and he also happens to be the main suspect in this crime, Kevin doesn’t really know how to respond.

It turns out that even though the man is suspected of killing the prosecutor, he wants the private eye to find out who the killer was. He says it’s not him, and is willing to pay Kevin Kellogg to find the person that is responsible and clear his name.

In order to do so, Kevin must turn to a friend. The pal is another former resident of jail and the ex-con is willing to help him out. He also happens to be the local leader of a black power group. At the same time, Joey Moore is trying to navigate a personal life crisis when one of his gambling opponents ends up killing himself and he finds himself having to deal with a baby. The only thing is that this D.C. to Maryland poker king has no idea what to do with an infant!

The investigation into the prosecutor’s murder and the suicide are going to turn up more dirt than anyone accounted for. The investigations quickly must leave the city streets full of crime and seedy activities and trade them in for different locations where money and power are flowing like water flows down a river. These are the highest power echelons, a place where greed is always going to be placed above morals and the ends justify the means when you are trying to reach your objective.

Now everything is getting more complicated because there are rumors that a video is missing. Allegedly the victim of the murder, the prosecutor, once had it in his possession. It is very important that they track down that video and find out what is on it, because the implications could end up reaching a long way.

The son of the prosecutor has now also gone missing and may have been a witness to the murder on top of that. Suspicious activities are certainly going on, and it appears that someone is targeting this family. The only thing left to figure out for this private eye is why.

Now there are two lit fuses running, and the clock is ticking. In a city that sees violence every single day, things are about to pushed to the edge. Can Washington and this private investigator as well as Joey Moore find a satisfying conclusion to their efforts? Or will the poker and political world be turned totally upside down by what happens next?
