The Informant Synopsis

Autumn 1941: most of the world is at war. America is hovering on the brink. Special Agent James Nessheim is stuck in Hollywood, working as an adviser to a studio making pro-FBI movies. And then one his key informants, Japanese-American Billy Osaka, asks to see him urgently. But before they can meet, Osaka vanishes. Nessheim's search for Osaka takes him to a Mob-run gambling club, through the dense streets of LA's Little Tokyo, from the seamy San Pedro docks to the hill-top ranch of a Communist sympathiser. As Nessheim begins to unravel Osaka's deadly secrets, he uncovers a chilling conspiracy to push America into the war. But other people are looking for Osaka too, and are prepared to kill anyone who gets in their way. A lethal race is on.
