'tween a Rock and a Hard Place
Jake Leggs didn't know when he walked into his favorite watering hole that his life was going to change on a dime, and not for the better.
A drug courier—a young woman—abandons a suitcase of drugs in Jake's truck behind the bar. He only finds out about it after he rescues her from her minders. Normally he'd turn it over to the cops, but a certain judge has a hard-on for him, and he's not sure he trusts anyone in law enforcement. He's forced by events to negotiate a trade for the girl's life with a drug lord while evading the cops. Throw in high-level corruption, a breakaway polygynous cult's involvement, the mob, and you have a recipe for disaster.
