Like the city he's served loyally for years, Mario Balzic (retired) isn't about to slip in to the twilight unnoticed. He's traded in his uniform for the shirt and tie of a private cop. But even in white-collar land, crime is prevalent. There's been a burglary at the local gun shop; a corrupt married politico is cheating with a stripper; a police chief a couple of towns over is hungry for power, a deli owner who mixes racketeering with the cold cuts; and a gangster's hapless nephew framed for selling pore and drugs. Balzic hasn't stepped into a cushy retirement gig - not by a long shot!
