Despite, or perhaps in ironic conjunction with, Rudy Giuliani's efforts to make New York City clean and pristine, graffiti has become a respected staple of the gallery scene. Barry "Twist" McGee's tags and caricatures are no exception, nor were they when displayed at the Venice Biennale this past summer. With more than 15 years of street cred, the California tagger's lively, humorous, and often bulbous depictions of street characters don't so much bring the street into the gallery as bring the gallery out into the street.

When the pregnant wife and four year old stepdaughter of fading movie star Tom Travis disappear a massive search is launched. Soon after the body of Travis’ wife is discovered only a few miles from where Tom had been riding his dune buggy on the day she vanished he's arrested and placed on trial for capital murder. Only a days away from an almost certain guilty verdict Travis’ lawyer hires suspended Ex-Deputy D.A. Steve Janson to try to find some overlooked clue that might keep Travis off death row. Janson accepts the assignment, not to help Travis, but in the faint hope of finding the missing child still alive. Janson’s investigation leads him on a twisted path from Travis’ mistress to her drug-dealing brother to the writer and producer of his Travis’ last movie and on across the landscape of Southern California until Janson eventually begins to wonder if Travis might really be innocent after all.
