Reluctant P.I. to the perfidious, Junior Bender, may be
L.A.’s smoothest operator but when he breaks one of the
cardinal rules of burglary (don’t take scores that you’re
being paid way too much for) he finds himself once again on
the wrong side of, well, the wrong side.
Los Angeles burglar Junior Bender has a rule about never
taking a job that pays too well: in the criminal underworld,
if you’re offered more money than a job is worth, someone is
going to end up dead. But he’s bending his rule this one
time because he and his girlfriend, Ronnie, are in desperate
need of cash to hire a kidnapper to snatch Ronnie’s
two-year-old son back from her ex. The whole thing is pretty
complicated and has Junior on edge.
The parameters of the job do nothing to calm his nerves. A
nameless woman in an orange wig has offered Junior fifty
grand—twenty-five up front—to break into the abandoned house
of a recently deceased 97-year-old recluse, Daisy Horton,
and steal a doll from her collection. Junior knows no doll
is worth 50K, so he figures there must be something hidden
inside the doll that can get him in a heap of trouble. It
doesn’t take long for Junior to realize he’s not the only
one looking for the doll. When an old friend ends up
murdered, Junior decides he will stop at nothing to figure
out who the woman in the orange wig is, and why she wants
the doll badly enough to leave a trail of bodies in her wake.
