A disgraced executive must catch a killer to redeem himself.
Amateur boxer turned executive Joe Robbins moves his family to Austin, Texas, to join a startup and get rich.
But the CEO is manipulative, the employees are zealots for the company, and the beautiful VP of Marketing has set her sights on Joe.
Joe is caught up in the frenzy of hyper-growth, and on a drunken trip to Vegas, he succumbs to the VP’s charms. His wife finds out and stays with Joe for the family, but she no longer trusts him.
When the company falls apart, the board forces the CEO to fire Joe. With a pending tax bill he can’t afford to pay, Joe searches frantically for a new job.
But then a director of the startup board is murdered.
The police half suspect Joe, but they need his help deciphering the motives of various suspects. When a second director is murdered, the CEO fears for his own safety and offers Joe a reward to find the killer.
If Joe can solve the mystery, he will restore his finances and perhaps earn back his wife’s trust.
But he better work fast because the killer is coming for Joe next.
