But what’s all of that got to do with anything?
People still go missing every day. Some of them don’t want to be found. You know that much, don’t you? Some people just like nations borrow heavily but guess what happens when you become indebted to the wrong people? Homer Spires asks himself the following question:
Q… How do you pay everyone back, murder the bad guys get everyone you care about back home safely, marry the girl of your dreams and still have time to play?
A… Simple, steal a billion pounds, fake your own death, get some surgery, buy a remote island in the tropics, and live happily ever after on the beach, earning 20%. Well, that was his plan anyway.
Hollywood and the City of Angels have their own set of rules for balancing their books but there’s a new sheriff coming to town. After their last assignment in Glasgow ‘Hiding Under the Covers’, our SO1 posse were on their way to LA-La land. Our sheriff in particular passionately believing that this routine assignment will really be his last.
Nothing out of the ordinary now, global chaos, corruption, dead bodies, fame, misfortune, forensics, and a new ‘A’ list swingers club in downtown LA, and of course all of the usual suspects.
In SO1 is there such thing as a routine assignment. Why is Professor Oldman in Moscow? Who is Homer Spires? What does GBH really stand for? And, what in the world has been going on?
It's January 2007. Why not take a trip to Tinsel Town and find out who was LYING UNDER THE STARS and WHY?
