Cops and Robbers

Two covers to choose from! "Grim" or "Whimsy cover!

Cops and Robbers (Grim cover) Cops and Robbers (Whimsy cover)
A pair of FBI agents set up a bogus movie production as part of an unlikely sting operation to snare a mob kingpin. They buy the worst script in Hollywood and hire a failed movie producer whose career is on the skids; a third-rate aging actress whose claim to fame is having performed Shakespeare… on a cruise ship; an amphetamine-enhanced screenwriter; a hooker; a Yiddish-speaking accountant; a black, flaming gay actor; and a Native American actor who insists on dressing like an Old West dime store Indian. However, throughout the course of the film, the mobsters and one of the FBI agents become so enamored by the glitter and glamour of Hollywood that they actually end up working together to try to make the movie a success. Our hero is a hitman in search of the redemption he doesn't believe he deserves. He realizes the fake film was never meant to be produced and develops a conscience believing it's wrong to allow the innocent actors and film crew to spend months of their lives working on a movie no one will ever see, despite the delusions of everyone else involved. Knowing their hopes and dreams will be dashed, our hero sets about trying to do the right thing.

 

Wonderland

Wonderland

Detective Alice Dodgson follows a summons from Police Chief O'Hare to the futuristic city of Wonderland. O'Hare wants Alice to assume the job of Wonderland's chief detective. She refuses, but he says, "You may find what you're looking for here in Wonderland." Alice agrees, hoping to find her sister who was abducted 15 years earlier. O'Hare's late for a tea party being given by Mademoiselle Milliner, one of Wonderland's patrons and socialites, who made her fortune from designing outrageous hats. He leaves her with Police Captain Jim Hooker, known as Capt. Hook because his left hand has been replaced by a metal hook. Alice encounters Dorothy Gale, a reporter for the Kansas Star who's come to Wonderland following a lead on a local criminal enterprise led by gangster Edmund Tusk, known as The Walrus. Alice learns the Walrus and his partner Carpenter are luring "young oysters," i.e., girls, into white slavery, their child sex trafficking emanating from Wonderland to Kansas and other locales. She decides to stay in Wonderland, suspecting her missing sister Wendy may have been one of their victims.
