After being set up in a Byzantine art heist, Junior is roped into an assignment he’d never consider if his life weren’t literally on the line. He’s supposed to stop the sabotage that’s been undermining a high-budget porn film being made by San Fernando Valley crime boss Trey Annunziato.
The problem is that the film stars Thistle Downing, for years America’s favorite—and most talented—child television star, now a drugged-out wreck. And Junior’s 13-year-old daughter, Rina, idolizes Thistle, so Junior has to change sides very discreetly.
Which means that suddenly, almost everyone wants to kill him.
