Its Los Angeles, 1992, and two crooked, over-sexed narcotics detectives are embroiled in the caper of their lives. An independent bookies safe is robbed of a large sum of money. The detectives are offered half of all they recover. Caught in a web of double-dealing, murder and mystery that is magnified by their own greed, things spin out of their control. As the case progresses, a mélange of beautiful women, bookmakers, policemen, drug addicts and dealers, prostitutes and gutter-level personalities all get involved.After many twists and turns in the story, the money chase comes to a surprising and humorous conclusion. This fictional story is based in part on real cases and shows how easily police officers can be drawn into inappropriate and illegal behavior in order to make the big score.Denny Pace writes from experience as a Los Angles policeman and a professor.
