However, the smooth-talking P.I. soon learns he's not the only one looking for the infamous hoopster, and must navigate between a crooked District Attorney, a ruthless and resourceful gangster, and a deadly-but-beautiful bounty hunter.In between dishing out beat-downs and juggling two amorous career women, the ghosts of Hollis's past begin to surface. Will Hollis find the missing baller before his deadly competitors do? And will clues from this case reveal leads to his lifelong mission — to find his father's murderer?
