On a dark Los Angeles freeway, someone fires a gunshot at a local football star. His family turns to Private Investigator Burnside, a former football star himself, who has recently left the LAPD. Burnside encounters beautiful girls, wayward athletes and overworked cops on his way toward finding a killer who knows he’s on their trail. Fighting his way through a baffling investigation, the body count starts to pile up and Burnside’s own life is now being threatened. And as he navigates down this perilous path, Burnside also comes to grips with a betrayal from his past, one that keeps returning to him, no matter how hard he tries to avoid it. Set against the sun drenched backdrop of a hot Los Angeles summer, the tension mounts as Burnside works feverishly towards nabbing the culprit — before they can get to him.
