Plum’s first case is to bring in former boyfriend (it ended very badly) and current police detective Joe Morelli.  Morelli is wanted for murder and is going to be hard to find.  Plum will need help from expert bond enforcement agent Ranger, a hooker named Lula, and her Grandma Mazur, who is always on top of the latest Burg gossip.
