Fin Finnegan, a San Diego police detective and wannabe actor heading straight for a midlife meltdown, is assigned a routine truck theft that turns into a toxic chemical spill, setting off a bizarre chain reaction of death and murder on both sides of the Mexican border. Fin is forced to team up with Nell Salter, a sexy female investigator, as well as an equally fetching U.S. Navy investigator who wants to learn all that Fin can teach her - and that’s saying a lot.

A GREAT MIX OF POLICE WORK AND HUMOR
Yes. It is the type of Joseph Wambaugh I love to read. It's a combination of police work with humor sprinkled in. The story is set in San Diego at the time George Bush was running against Bill Clinton.
Fin Finnegan because he's so neurotic. A 45 year old cop with 3 bad marriages behind him Finn wants to be a movie star when he grows up. But it doesn't appear that's going to happen any time soon.
The same answer - Fin Finnegan - for the same reasons.
