It’s the tumultuous month of April, 1968. Victor and Vincent Brovelli, identical twins, owners of Brovelli Brothers Used Cars, have just repo’ed a 1961 Chevrolet Impala and driven it back to their car lot on East 14th Street in Oakland, California. Victor opens the trunk and discovers the dead body of the beautiful Winona Davis, their temporary part-time secretary, with a bullet hole in her head. The police arrest Sweets Monroe, the boys’ sometime friend and neighborhood burglar for the crime. In the past, Monroe had saved the used car business and their father’s life, so the twins are honor-bound to help him.
Victor takes on the principal role of detective. Two more murders occur, and both appear to be tied to Winona’s death. The ghost of Winona haunts Victor Brovelli as he attempts to find her murderer. Not even a violent motorcycle gang, the Black Panthers, a mafia drug dealer, a razor wielding local pimp, and a band of crooked cops keep Victor and Vincent Brovelli from discovering the murderer of Winona Davis.
