Now forced to retire from the Washington D.C police, he scrapes a living as a private investigator. His latest case is personal - Frank's cousin Jeffrey is involved with a drugs operation.

But when Jeffery's body is turns up in Frank's house, it's clear he was in deeper than anyone realized.

Stolen from the scene are Frank's revolver - the murder weapon - and his cherished music collection.
