His homecoming ignites a powder keg, casting Solomon and his crew head first into a ten-year-old nightmare. Each the heir to one of the head LA organized crime factions: the Black and Italian Mob, the Mexican Cartel, and the Irish Mob, The 5150 barely dodge dirty cops and mob hitters while exposing long forgotten secrets in their search for answers. The more they uncover the truth, the darker and more twisted the nightmare becomes. Old habits die hard as they solve a mystery riddled with deceit and betrayal, all the while just trying to stay alive.
