Washed-up movie star Jack Palms is knee-deep in a Bay Area drug war and it ll take the performance of a lifetime to get him through it alive. In the three years since Jack Palms left Hollywood and kicked his drug habit, he s added fourteen pounds of muscle, read eighty-three books, and played it as straight as anyone could reasonably ask. But the residual checks are drying up, and the ascetic lifestyle s starting to wear thin, so Jack s happy to cash in on his former celebrity by showing some out-of-town high rollers around San Francisco s club scene. Then people start turning up dead, and Jack realizes he s been playing tour guide to a pack of former KGB agents turned coke dealers. Soon he s got too many gunmen after him to count including a South American drug cartel, a mountain-sized Samoan enforcer, and a mobbed-up strip-club owner with an army of thugs. That s not to mention the gorgeous bartender who may be planning on shooting him in the back and the homicide cop who s just given Jack twenty-four hours to bring down the Bay Area s biggest drug dealer. But the thing that scares Jack the most? He s starting to enjoy himself. less
