When Ezra's brother goes missing and the police visibly are ignoring the case, she is hell bent on finding him, or at least his corpse, no matter what.
After days of hunting around the shady part of the city, she is shocked to hear about her brother's involvement in the Mafia, but still determined.
Fate plays Ezra into a very, very fail proof plan - Kidnapping The Mafia Boss (note the sarcasm).
“Your brother... is not who you think he is.”
“What do you mean?”
“Trust me, darling, some things are better left unsaid. Ignorance is bliss, as they say.”
