Detective Vincent Mora is a mild-mannered homicide investigator recuperating from a recent gunshot wound in Puerto Rico. Upon his return to the States, Vincent learns that Iris Ruiz, once Vincent's "special friend," now a high-priced Atlantic City hooker, has taken a dive from the penthouse suite of a high-rise hotel.
Sensing something amiss, Vincent catches the next flight to New Jersey to investigate.
But what Vincent doesn't know is that pathological momma's-boy and serial-rapist Teddy Magyk is waiting for him. Teddy's upset about being sent to prison for raping a senior citizen and he's preparing to take his frustrations out on the arresting officer, namely Detective Vincent Mora.
But what the Magic Man doesn't realize is that getting Vincent Mora is going to take more than a gun and a working knowledge of investigative procedure, because Vincent's not working according to procedure, and he's not in a forgiving mood.
