Synopsis: With more twists than an L.A. freeway, Philip Reed guides you on a lethal joyride you won’t forget…

Harold Dodge, pushing fifty, is a good man. But in a less-than-perfect world — that is, Los Angeles — good men sometimes have to do bad things. Just about everyone in the City of Angels has a hard luck story, but when it comes to bad breaks, Harold is rewriting the book.

Now he’s in a friend’s car — and in a spot. A pair of hired repo men in a stolen Buick are trying to run him off the freeway and into an early grave. But the cops pull him over first — a blessing, except for one little thing. Harold’s got a dead body in the trunk. That’s when his luck takes a turn…for the worse.

It all started because Harold has a weakness for killer legs. And when Marianna Perado in her spike heels asks him to help her “unwind” a rip-off deal at Joe Covo’s dealership, where Harold once bird-dogged suckers into buying used cars, he jumps… and lands in a cesspool of corruption.

Harold lives for women and cars — he just never figured on dying for them. Now he has to add up a pack of lies and hope a scrap of truth comes out in the equation. But Harold lives in a city where everyone’s working a hustle, where the only question is who’s hustling you. The Santa Ana winds are blowing, and Harold Dodge is feeling the heat.
