In Indianapolis, several years ago Albert Samson lost his private investigative license, but his attorney gets him reinstated; within a few hours, he has two clients. Schoolyard basketball guru Joe Ellison asks Albert to look into vandalism at a nearby African-American church. Attorney Christopher Holloway hires him for an exorbitant fee to help his law firm in their defense of Ronnie Williger, suspected rapist and serial killer. Albert also wants to know what is bothering his childhood buddy Captain Jerry Miller, who arrested Ronnie and cost Albert his sleuthing license. Finally his adult daughter Sam wants him to find her missing mother.

His cases are not straight forward. A stakeout by an unknown person near the church stops a dangerous fire from occurring. Williger defense team lead attorney Karl Benton expects Albert to find dirt on Jerry so that they can paint a motive of a bad cop needing money framing their client while sharing a finder's fee with a crony. The cases intersect with a killer targeting the sleuth and his family members and new girlfriend.
