Los Angeles, 1953: Home to bent cops, smooth criminals, and curvaceous starlets; where the glamour and wealth of Hollywood and Beverly Hills collide with the crime and grit of Chinatown.

Can there be any doubt about the loyalties of L.A.'s greatest and most patriotic hero, the Eagle? America is about to find out the hard way!
