SummaryChinatown: Private eye Jake Gittes, living off the murky moral climate of sunbaked, pre-war Southern California is hired by a beautiful socialite to investigate her husband's extra-marital affair. Gittes is swept into a maelstrom of double dealings and deadly deceits, uncovering a web of personal and political scandals that come crashing together for one, unforgettable night in Chinatown.
Two Jakes: Set in 1948 Los Angeles, this is a sequel to Chinatown. Jake Gittes is a successful private eye who takes on a case of suspected adultery that explodes into murder that's tied to a grab for oil and to Jake's own past.
