Detective Jake Roberts went outside the law to capture serial killer Jared Hamilton. His superiors in Atlanta Homicide gave Jake a choice––retire, or face criminal prosecution. He decided to retire and move to LA with his Hollywood agent girlfriend Caitland. He writes best-selling crime novels. Caitland and Jake go to Phoenix to visit his childhood friend. Fred and Andrea take them to the opening night show of superstar comedian Bobby Goode. During the show, Bobby humiliates a heckler. Phoenix homicide detectives Wynter Williams and Vince Farina are investigating a murder. Jake happens onto the crime scene and is asked to consult on the case. Jake and Wynter have growing suspicions about who the killer might be. They arrive to see Bobby’s last show before he leaves for New York City. “Shots fired!”
