When a wily homicide detective investigates a mob-style murder and realizes that his police department is full of corruption and littered with crooked police officers receiving illegal payoffs from the local mob, he appeals for help to an old family friend, the hard-boiled and no nonsense, crime-fighting, State of New Jersey Attorney General, Charles "Chuck" McCracken. When the cagey, old, attorney general hears that his old friend and ally, the mysterious, dark stranger dressed in black has arrived on the scene and assisted the detective in his investigation, then Chuck McCracken knows some serious evil lurks within Clinton City, New Jersey. Chuck knows that there is only one man for this job. He recruits his loyal and faithful, bodyguard, and professional assassin and assistant, James "Jimmy" Reeves and he sends Jimmy in to assist and protect the detective and to dig in where others fear to tread. Jimmy finds that hidden behind the grand exterior of the exclusive, world-class hotel and resort, known as Casa Al Mare, is an interior full of evil, danger and deception. What Jimmy Reeves does not count on is falling in love along the way, and that behind the scenes, two gorgeous women compete for the heart of the dashing and courageous, Jimmy Reeves. 

Will Jimmy and the good detective solve the murder and end the grip of evil that has stretched across and enveloped the old city? Or will the mobsters kill Jimmy and the detective and increase their reign of terror? Which of the women will Jimmy give his heart to? Will the mysterious, dark and quiet stranger in the black hat arrive just in time to save the day?
