Demotion to Petty Crime doesn’t stop an old school cop and his female rookie partner from using excessive force and questionable methods to fight crime - Sequel to Priceless.

When the activities of a rumpled old school homicide detective and his young female rookie partner threaten the re-election of a big city mayor, they are unceremoniously demoted to Petty Crime. It is hoped this move will keep them out of trouble and out of the news. Unfortunately for the mayor's political ambitions, this is not what happens. As the detectives dutifully look for lost dogs and missing electrical appliances, they still find ample opportunity to use excessive force and questionable methods in their pursuit of justice. This lighter, but still very deadly, sequel to PRICELESS 'stars' the same mismatched Izzy and Mako characters - A May and December crime fighting duo who ultimately and begrudgingly learn to trust and respect each other.

The Writer: John Hunter

Former Peace Corps volunteer, big ticket sales engineer, commercial graphic artist and packaging design consultant. More recently, I'm an award winning and produced scriptwriter living under the shade of a large oak tree in Central Florida. As a writer, my voice is character driven, slightly dark and quirky with a dash of humor. My dystopian horror Baby Soup won the 2013 Florida Independent Filmmakers Contest, four of my short scripts have been produced and in July 2020, I declined an offer from mainland China for my mid-budget creature feature Snow Worms - " O Netflix, Where Art Thou?" Some of my scripts have been turned into quick and easy to read entertainment written in not-so-wordy... Go to bio
