I would rewrite the logline a bit. The first 2 lines are decent. I would lose the last line completely and try to keep this down to 2 sentences. If the Protagonist is lead to a 'criminal organization' then obviously not 'everybody is on the straight and narrow'. Hopefully, there is a story element that the protagonists have a 'stake' or something worth losing if they fail to uncover something within a certain time frame. Try to work a stake into your log. Gl with the script, Tony

Good story idea. I Agree that the last two lines should be taken out of your logline.
Another thing would be to try and keep the story in present tense. Try this as a first sentence. “A luxury sports car drives along a windy country road.” take our some filler words as well. You use the word 'begin' too many times in just the first two scenes, some of these words can be deleted entirely. Go through and tighten it up, this story could work! You have an nice knack for dialogue and creating a film noir type of set up. Keep it up.
