1950’s L.A. Down-at-heel private eye back from the war takes a case he doesn’t want but can’t afford to turn down.
The client is lying. The Feds are lying. Even his friends are lying.
Along the way, he runs afoul of the mob. Their tame cops are leaning on him. People around him start dying.

He can handle all that, but now he’s seeing a ghost.
Or is he…?
