The chief of internal security for New England's professional basketball team, the Highlanders, is found dead in his office, with a suicide note and conflicting evidence of foul play. Refusing to believe that he would have reason to kill himself, and frustrated with the slowness of the police force's progress on the case, Johnny's widow, Roseanne, and her friend, Randy, launch a renegade investigation on their own. Aided by Roseanne's brother, Graham, a fiercely protective loose cannon, they dig up evidence that Johnny, just prior to his death, was running his own investigation into a number of deaths and incidents to star players of the Highlanders.
The amateur detectives find themselves mixed up with a ruthless gand of mobsters, many of whom are responsible for the drug trade - and a string of violent murders-from Washington, D.C. to Boston. When their quest takes a gruesome and deadly turn, the three wonder if they're in over their heads.
