Wilson should have just walked away when three men came looking for a way to boost a valuable piece of art. But the heist was more than just a job for Wilson; it was a chance to get off the sidelines and back in the game.
East West Michigan City is the hometown of Northville homicide detective Xander Nicholson. While his partner Dan Gold deals with the Chicken Man in Northville, Xander assists his old friend Suzie and Kyle, her current boyfriend. Obviously, East West Michigan City is not the ideal place for a wild animal safari park, but while investigating the odd crime that has landed Kyle in jail, Xander discovers one being built in the small town. Smelling trouble, Xander rallies his friends and family to assist him. And he has plenty of help: Dennis, his retired, septuagenarian father; Calico, his younger bipolar depressive sister; Suzie, still attractive as ever; and Clyde, the lost bloodhound. Only this unique team can uncover the corruption and sheer stupidity driving the leaders of East West Michigan City to allow the buffalo to roam the shores of Lake Michigan.
