Logan is a young, wealthy bachelor that has recently gotten wind of the fact that his family’s wealth and connections had far less to do with his parent’s successful law firm than he’d originally thought. Thanks to the FBI, he’s learned that he is instead the sole heir to a fledgling crime family and their corresponding syndicates operating within the city of Austin and his mother and father are at the top of the pyramid.
