A movie producer hurtles to his death from the top of the Golden Gate Bridge, an apparent suicide that shocks the film community and puts a two hundred million dollar production in jeopardy.
His colleague, Grace, doesn't believe it was suicide and turns to private detec-tive Cape Weathers to find the truth. To solve the case, Cape and his friend Sally an assassin raised by the Triads take on the Russian mob, a major movie studio, and a recalcitrant police department by enlisting the help of rogue cops, computer hackers, and an investigative journalist who just doesn't give a damn. But with a sniper on their trail, the challenge will be staying alive long enough to find out the truth.
