The past has a way of coming back with a vengeance.
On an October day in 1949, private eye Dewey Webb’s life is turned upside-down when his long-lost father shows up and asks for Dewey’s help. It seems simple: Find Gus’s friend Len. But is there more to this request than Gus is saying?
Dewey puts aside his bitter feelings for the father who abandoned him as a child and begins a hunt for Len, but discovers that Gus and Len have been involved in dangerous illegal activities, and that one of their targets may be after the two men. Things take a murderous turn and Dewey finds himself rubbing elbows with Denver’s wealthy and powerful elite while dodging mobsters and searching for his father, who has gone missing. Can Dewey unravel a myriad of secrets and lies to find a killer before he strikes again?
