When the Captain gives him the boot again, soft-boiled detective Stanley Bentworth finds himself back in his P.I. office in search of new clients and cases to solve. His first assignment sends Stan and his associate Sanford as bounty hunters to capture a bail-jumper, a botched adventure that puts Stan in the hospital and results in a warrant for his arrest on federal kidnapping charges.
Now on the lam under an alias, Stan works as a bag man for what turns out to be a domestic terrorist support organization. This unlikely association finds him locked away in a remote safe house that he calls “Gitmo North.” He does battle with the Department of Homeland Security, corrupt narcotics detectives, his former wife's jealous husband, and a mob assassin, all out to deliver lethal payback for the questionable deeds of his checkered past.
With so many hurdles to clear and so many foes to face, Stanley struggles to keep everything in balance, all the while juggling disabling migraine headaches and disruptive romantic relationships with a beautiful lawyer and his ex-wife.
Just another routine month in the life of Stanley Bentworth, Private Investigator.
