As a little boy, Trent Govern always took up for the underdog, ready to step in if he thought someone was being treated unfairly and needed help. While growing up, he had plenty of chances to do just that, and now, as a successful restaurateur in Washington, D. C., he still takes up the cause to ward off unscrupulous operators who take advantage of those without the power and resources to fight back. A like-minded group, but with diverse backgrounds, has bonded with Trent, joining him in past struggles and standing by to take on new challenges. A TV photo-journalist, cabbie, private detective, psychologist, and law professor make up the group ready to help Trent "right a wrong." They go after the Jankoff brothers, owners of Urbana Realty, who have forced struggling families out of their homes through shady, though legal, foreclosures. Govern, who is secretly in love with the wife of one of the brothers, suspects Urbana Realty is also a front for an unknown, lucrative, enterprise. Through detective work, the group uncovers a darker-than-shady Bangkok pornography company, Outlandish Desires, owned by the Jankoffs, with cash stashed in a Cayman Island bank account. Trent's group, working strictly behind the scenes, uses sting-like, certainly unique, "methods," to frustrate, confuse, and, otherwise, frighten, the brothers into giving the families back their homes and giving up millions of dollars in their pornography business. The Jankoffs also land in jail! What methods? Call it lying, tricking, conning, cheating, whatever, it's what they (Trent favors "whatever") do to bring the bad guys down. To further befuddle them, Trent brings in Hollywood character actors to interface with the brothers in faux roles assigned by him. The group works quietly and secretly knowing it's easier to push buttons to get things done when no one knows who's doing it. Love, drama, mystery, and suspense prevail as Govern plans a continuous flow of clever ruses that the Jankoffs never see coming.
