Two Cops Chasing a Rumor ...

Sergeant Rick Valkonen, all but retired from the LAPD, is given a final no-worries assignment to carry him into his new life as a beach bum with a pension. Make sure the new chief of police's teenage twins, Justin and Justine, don't get into trouble in big, bad L.A. But Justine gives Valkonen the slip one night and that's when things start getting crazy.

Detective Joan Duarte of the Santa Monica PD is fresh off a week's suspension from duty for assaulting a fellow officer. She coldcocked the guy who'd been sexually harassing her. Returning to duty, Duarte is told to go see an L.A. cop named Valkonen.

Valkonen tells Duarte what happened to Justine after she ditched him. She was invited to an underground rock concert with a great new band. Only thing is, the band plans to commit suicide on stage - and the audience is supposed to follow right along into the hereafter.

Has to be a gag, doesn't it? In SoCal, maybe not. When Valkonen and Duarte start to investigate, they don't like the vibe they get. The death concert begins to look more and more real. Problem is, the two cops don't know the band's name, the date, or the venue for the concert.

Two cops who were supposed to debunk a hoax suddenly find themselves working the most deadly case of their careers.
