A strip club owner named Manco Kapak has been robbed by a masked gunman while placing his cash receipts in a bank’s night-deposit box. Kapak is determined to find the culprit, and make him pay. After a month of investigation Kapak’s goons settle on the innocent but tough-as-nails Joe Carver, who is furious that he’s been falsely accused. Meanwhile the real culprit and his new girlfriend believe they’ve found a whole new profession, robbing Kapak of his strip clubs’ cash.

As the case explodes into a triple killing, Carver finds himself in the middle of a brewing gang war over Kapak’s little empire, ploughing into territory more strange and violent than he could ever have imagined.
