To complicate things even further, the restaurant owner's wife hires hunky private eye Vinny DeLucia. Annie and Vinny have some unfinished business, but she's eager to stay focused on this story - until the story becomes a little too much about her.Now an infamous mobster, a missing man, a dead woman, and a cast of local characters begin to converge around Annie and pose some scary questions about her father's connection to the crime.
