Moss Cole is a private detective. The kind you thought only existed in old movies and afternoon reruns. He’s smart, talented, sometimes even charming. You’d think he could find a better gig than carrying on his grandfather’s legacy as a ‘Dick’.
Moss is out of money, out of ideas and out of steam. That’s why he’s looking for a stolen Sinatra record… one that may be a figment of one cantankerous old bastards imagination. Of course, if that were true, Moss wouldn’t have so many people busting down his door and threatening his life.
A vivacious redhead, a foul-mouthed Irish rock star and a little girl only serve to complicate matters when all Cole wants is some coffee and some Hot Sinatra…

“Moss Cole sizzles hotter than bacon…” – Red Tash (Troll, Or Derby; This Brilliant Darkness)
