Logline

He is a Ph.D. in history who teaches at a college in a small city in New York State. He is also a former undercover DEA agent and present part-time private investigator. And he has secrets—dark ones. Randall Arthur’s first real case involves the widow of a man he once worked with, a man he saw die in an explosion in Asia. The widow has been receiving eerie phone calls, saying that the truth about her husband’s death has yet to be revealed. And the caller has directed her to Randall Arthur. The case he is about to take on will take him to the streets of his hometown of Falcon City, NY, and to Australia. It will cause him to relive events he does not necessarily want to relive. It will give him the chance to rectify the failure of his last mission with the DEA a few years ago, where the man they were after escaped and left several of Randall’s colleagues dead. The man is now apparently selling a new type of heroin, which has reached the streets of Falcon City and has killed a young user. And it will lead him to look insanity right in the face.
