What to expect

Ex–Dallas Cowboy Rick Bannion has been through the revolving prison door for drug trafficking and now hunts bail-jumpers. His old friend Jack Brendy has just been busted by the Feds for smuggling cocaine, and when Brendy's wife approaches him seeking a favor, Rick jumps at the chance to help. The favor?—keep the government's sleazy informer off the stand. Unfortunately, when things go wrong, Rick finds himself in the crosshairs of the Feds.

Listen to a sample

“Crooked lawyers, pasty FBI informants, egomaniacal ex-convicts, and denizens of the Dallas hinterlands populate this rough-riding story of a drug frame-up and its aftermath…The ensuing tough, action-packed trek through and around seedy bars, strip joints, and bad neighborhoods provides page-turning suspense and plenty of authentic local color. A good choice.”

Library Journal

“This Dallas version of Boston’s The Friends of Eddie Coyle has memorable characters and punchy, side-of-the-mouth dialogue—adding all the more muscle to Gray’s hard-boiled rep.”
