Phil Moony, prematurely "retired" from his job as a paramedic with the Chicago Fire Department for running afoul of the local political machine, is at loose ends. So when a stranger mistaking him for a different Phil Moony calls him in the middle of the night to deliver an ominous-sounding warning, Moony decides to try his hand at sleuthing and strikes a deal with the caller to search for his namesake. After receiving another call for the wrong Moony, Phil agrees to a meeting and arrives to find a dead body, a bottle of booze, and a suitcase full of baseball cards. Afraid that someone is setting him up - most probably the Democratic Machine out for revenge - Phil finds himself in a difficult position: With the police asking questions and few clues as to what is happening around him, Phil must unravel the mysteries behind this confusing and increasingly deadly situation. Most importantly, though, he must solve the mystery behind the man with his name.
