Chuck Restic has achieved the American dream: a successful career with a large corporation, his own home, a great health insurance and retirement package. But after twenty years in Human Resources he sees very little value in what he does all day . . . until he embarks on a mission to find a missing employee.
Soon, Chuck finds himself moonlighting as a private detective—and feeling alive again. While balancing the inane demands of his office, he begins to unravel a web of murder and crooked real estate deals. And while his HR skills are surprisingly useful in detective work, Chuck just hopes to solve the mystery without getting himself terminated.
