Blighted by his past, an emotionally conflicted hero dad in dire financial straits participates in a last heist in rural Virginia. Sharp dialogue and moments of dark humour pack a punch in a grim and gritty tale of casual brutality, rip-roaring car chases and shoot-em-up mayhem. A no-holds-barred noir novel of despair, redemption and inner turmoil.
