Jake, as a tambourinist, joins an 8 piece alt-rock band to kill the time between cases (and chicks dig guys in bands). This new sideline puts Jake in touch with a number of the bartenders and club owners in the St. John's area.
Almost immediately Jake starts to get the sense that something is amiss. With a little help from Des and Tinny acting as undercover operatives, Jake uncovers a cartel among the bartenders intended to drive up drink prices in the St. John's area.
Fortunately, Leslie has experience with forensic audits and corporate crime so she is able to swoop in on Jake's cue and take the big-wig bartenders down.
