Special Agent James Nessheim has a local informant who's willing to help. But right after telling Nessheim he's discovered something important, Billy Osaka disappears. It turns out that lots of people are looking for Billy. The trail leads Nessheim through the mock-chateau of a Studio head, a high-class gambling club, the dense streets of LA's Little Tokyo, a newspaper mogul's castle full of distinguished European emigres and a tuna cannery. Nessheim needs to discover where Osaka's real loyalties lie before it's too late."@en ;
