And with the big celebration day coming up things are not easy in the town. Lots of people have arrived for the event. There’s a big election going on and Carter and Ajax are getting stonewalled by another agency. But there not down and out and soon they learn more and more about what’s going on. It involves rival gangs that control different parts of the town.
