This time around Shell Scott gives up chasing downtown low-lifes for the uptown high-end kind. A mysterious and industrious industrialist trusts Scott with finding a stock swapper who seems to know too much. And too much is just the beginning. From big-time boardrooms to bawdy motel rooms our man Scott isn't about to sell these crooks short. Tempers flare and plots boil over but in this contest between Shell Scott and some bad-guy bigwigs, busty femme fatales and flying bullets; between life and death, the end could come right down to a Dead Heat.
