In A World Of Bikers, Meth, And Overdue Mortgages. . .

All the miles. All the blood. All has led him here. Looking for a place to hole up, O'Conner--with nothing to his name but a failing motorcycle, a gun, and uncollected debts--lies low in the last place he thought he'd end up: the suburbs. But Willow Ridge, once an exclusive gated community, is now tarnished and crumbling. Ordinary citizens cling to their worthless homes while society's outcasts--and O'Conner is no exception--creep in to fill the gaps.

One Man's Got Nothing Left To Lose. . .

O'Conner's style has always been more shoot-and-run, but this time he stays, getting involved with the Ridge's residents--discovering criminal behavior can happen anywhere. Homeowners dangle at the ends of their financial rope, gangs clash over Willow Ridge territory, housewives set their sights on him, and O'Conner is thrust into an inescapable tangle of passion, betrayal, and violence. When all-out war breaks out between the Mas Trece and Vandal Vikings gangs, fueled by treachery shockingly close to home, O'Conner is forced to make life-or-death decisions about his newfound neighbors. The American Dream is in flames. . .and he wonders if he'll still be standing when the smoke clears.
