When Jim finds the ex-Navy Seal owner of his favorite food truck dead in the truck's kitchen, he ends up embroiled in a heated political battle between the new wave of gourmet food trucks and the established boardwalk restaurants.


Jim finds his favorite taco truck cook Tony Acosta, an ex-Navy Seal, dead in his food truck, fatally shot around dawn. He was on bad terms with some colleagues, all of whom were targeted by the boardwalk restaurants, whose cause to banish the trucks was championed by city councilman Greg Dousett, a known police supporter, who posed as Iraq marines veteran at a monument unveiling. Jim tries to dodge Jennifer Starke’s observation of his sometimes to unorthodox methods and commiserates with Callie’s tough time on Dr. Miranda Buckley’s Atlanta hospital staff.
