When they begin to get un-requested aide from the CIA and others Franco begins to figure that they have been used as a tool of revenge, led to Europe by dishonest associates back in New Orleans. As a side story, they are assisted by a dancer who becomes an investigator in New Orleans because she wants to investigate the murder of her friend, the dancer. This is not a screenplay yet - it is written as a novel, and will be published in early 2013. The story was meant to draw upon the detective shows of the 1970s: Magnum P.I., Baretta, Colombo, Rockford Files, etc. This story could lead into a TV show as much as into a film.
