Jim and Otis Rice came to the conclusion that some help in the office was needed. Paperwork on both ends of their law and investigation office was piling up. Little did they know, they were about to embark on one of the most challenging investigations of their careers. Having a good friend murdered is hard enough but telling his daughter is even harder. Promising her the killer or killers would be caught, Otis and Jim now had a formidable task in front of them. Their task was to involve traveling to other countries, eavesdropping, surveillance, political corruption, and breaking up a large smuggling ring, who dealt not only in dope but humans as well.
