Jim takes the case and along with his friend Buck they go to Area 51 to find mysteries on every turn of the case.

Is the death related to the top secret goings on in Area 51? Is there a cover up involving little green men, or just terrestrial beings ready to kill? Will this case lead to the destruction of Las Vegas by a terrorist bent on killing everyone in Sin City with a new Area 51 virus. Can Jim & Buck stop him in time? On the side, Trapper goes off to find the missing brother of his lady friend, Sam the bookie and ex-hooker. Can Trapper find the brother or will he find something far more dangerous.
