Development Pitch

Private detectives Matt Singer and Jamal Wade’s plan to sell real estate as a side business explodes into murder when their client is brutally slain in a house they’ve listed for sale. In their search to find the killer, Matt and Jamal find themselves trapped in a Chinese puzzle box of cover-ups and corruption that goes to the very top of the southern California beach town called Paraiso (but seems like Hell.) Before the case comes to its shattering conclusion they will uncover a man’s crushed skull and shattered bones buried forty years ago … the Mayor’s illegitimate son who threatens to destroy his father’s reputation … a political assassination disguised as an accident … and the most devastating discover of all – the truth is much closer to them than they’d thought possible.
