This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: At 48, Jack McCain is beginning to resemble the antique Auburn Speedster his grandfather left him years ago. Sleek, classy, and powerful in its day, the car is now an anachronism that needs to be sheltered from the harsh realities of its environment to prevent its slipping into an ignoble dotage.Jack would like nothing better than to keep himself garaged and under wraps next to his Speedster, but fate has conspired against him. Driven to distraction by a manipulative ex-wife, an insensitive girlfriend, and an epic mid-life crisis, Jack finds himself the chance owner of a customized import car. Hoping to sell the car, he joins a car club run by a bunch of twenty-something tuner punks who don't seem to know very much about cars. When one of the members, a beautiful tomboy who happens to be an exotic dancer, follows him home his life begins to spiral out of control.Meanwhile, a screwball collection of villains including a pair of neon-haired underachievers, a serial sexual predator, and the owner of the gentleman's club called Glitters, scheme to separate Jack from the valuable Speedster. They want to sell it to launch a black tar heroin enterprise on Florida's posh Lower East Coast. They will stop at nothing to get it. Fueled by their spectacular and often hilarious ineptitude, they mire themselves and Jack in a predicament that seems more and more hopeless as it unfolds.When a murderous deviant named Mateo abducts two women to force his hand, Jack must shake his malaise and come to grips with the boredom and indecisiveness at the root of his troubles. He enlists the help of his best friend, Mike, to rescue the women, but even a bagful of guns and the best of intentions are not enough it seems against a resourceful and determined foe. Tensions rise and bodies fall, from the walled mansions of Palm Beach to the mangrove labyrinths of Florida's Gulf Coast, as events race to an exciting and unexpected conclusion.

Über den Autor: Jonah Gibson is a retired CPA and management accountant who lives in Port St. Lucie, Florida with his wife and as many greyhounds as they are able to squeeze into the house. He has been writing since he was a child, but only turned to it seriously when he left off working for a living in 2008, principally because it salves his fascination with criminal activity without getting him into any trouble. When he is not writing, he is tinkering at art and probably thinking about fishing although he never actually does the latter as he hates to get his tackle wet. Jonah prefers the sacred to the profane, but profanity to speech that has been sanitized of impact. He prefers art to politics and politics to war, quiet to music and music to noise. He prefers driving to flying, but, these days, who doesn't. He'd rather have red wine than white, scotch than bourbon, and martinis than almost anything else. He likes his candy with nuts. Jonah believes fiction is often truer than reality, and art is more reasonable than philosophy. He thinks science confirms faith in ways only a poet would understand. He believes that, at a minimum, one should leave the world in a better state than one found it, and that while it's okay to fail at this, it's not okay not to try.
