"How many times have you been married, Alfredo?"
"Three, but always to the same woman."
Bell-bottoms, intrigue and a neo-noir soundtrack that never lets go. A murder mystery wrapped in a love story wrapped in a Cold War conspiracy. When blues saxophonist and good-time guy Johnny Dupress is found drowned on a water bed at a Los Santos party, questions get asked. Murder? Overdose? A sex game gone wrong? A stupid idea for bedding? Charismatic, acerbic Alfredo Smith is a failed stock car driver tortured by over-sentimentality and uncontrollable rage, but he's determined to find out the truth about Johnny's death. Alfredo sets off on a obsessive journey of romance and betrayal that inexplicably requires lots of stock car chases and shooting out the window at high speed.
