From the Cover...
Jack Owen has gotten himself in over his head. At his low-paying day job, employees are leaving suddenly, and there's a car full of bullet holes stashed in his boss's maintenance shed. It's all starting to make him wonder just what kind of a car wash he's working for.
At home, his best friends Mike and Chris need to separate their mother Regina and their abusive step-father Ted before they kill each other. Maybe they can get rid of Ted somehow, without Regina finding out...
Then there's that old drunk in the neighbourhood who's been beating his dog. Somebody should do something about that guy.
How did Jack's life ever get so complicated, and how will he keep it all from his Dad and his sister?
