Summary

Summary

Angelo DiNoto is the most powerful crime lord in New Jersey, his empire sustained by pure heroin from the poppies of an old Turkish farmer. That is, until a $5 million dollar shipment goes missing. Richard Mundi, a shady developer, sees the lost heroin as capital infusion for his failing business. His daughter Gloria, literally in bed with would-be revolutionaries, thinks it’s her ticket out. “Mailman”, a long-time postal clerk dying of cancer, believes finding the heroin would be perfect ending to a failed life. Add in punch-drunk P.I. Kelly, hired by Mundi to tail Gloria, Kelly’s young protégé, two brothers working as DiNoto’s enforcers, and a conflicted collections agent, and you have an Elmore Leonard-esque cast of characters running rampant—until all threads lead to an unforgettable showdown over the old Turk’s load.
