Heart of the Old Country

eBook - 2013
Rate this:
Nineteen-year-old Mike is at loose ends: driving a beat-up Buick for Big Lou's Car Service and trying to decide whether he should remain a college student, marry his high school girlfriend, work full-time, or drift into the lucrative and omnipresent arena of local organized crime. Enter Nicky Shades, schoolyard hero turned junkie, just out of rehab and also driving for Lou. Nicky and Mike rekindle their uneven friendship as Nicky attempts the difficult path of sobriety. But old habits, especially Nicky's, are hard to break. One night, stoned to the gills, Nicky robs a social club where the local don operates. Mike's life is changed forever as he's forced to confront the grim realities of wiseguy justice and his own culpability in its execution.
