Struggling PI Carlotta Carlyle drives a cab at night to make ends meet. She's almost done with the night shift when a fare tries to rob her, and her moonlighting gig becomes a crime scene. Unfortunately for the thief, nothing ruffles Carlotta. As she figures out why she was targeted, she uncovers startling information.
