Doubles Crossed

Description: Dimwitted yet determined police detectives Ramsey and Flapjack have been hunting wisecracking hoodlum Freddie (aka Freddie the Finisher) and the notorious Dead Street mob with nothing to show for it. Now, Freddie's identical twin brother, hometown hero and newly appointed FBI Chief Irving Tower, is coming to town. With a retiring police chief and a crackerjack reporter breathing down their necks, the boys have only days to stop Dead Street's dastardly quest for the heist of the century and solve a femme fatale’s bizarre missing person case. Gumshoes, guns and gams galore!
