About the Book:

A misunderstanding lands Rick in a Mexican jail. His new pals are chronic offenders; Rick is chronically misunderstood. He didn’t know he was working for gangsters, and even if he did, what was he supposed to do about it? The Mexican cops want him to turn on his associates, the mob will take the first opportunity to plant him face down in the sand, and he needs to get out of there RIGHT NOW. Sometimes he’s a little too smart. Police in Rick’s home town are investigating the disappearance of a young woman. Rick tells the embassy lackey he accidentally killed the missing woman and for once he’s hit upon a scheme which seems to work. U.S. Marshals bearing an extradition writ pluck him from Mexico and deliver him to Minnesota. If he pretends the marshals are bodyguards, the attention makes him feel like a VIP. When Rick recants his confession the Sheriff can laugh along or throw a fit, Rick doesn’t care. But now there's physical evidence implicating him and he's truly screwed.
