Jesse Few is a 49-year-old suburban rogue who's perfectly fine living a life of golf, booze, and women too young for him. But when a mysterious backyard stalker threatens his mother, and a megalomaniac preacher skirmishes with his son, Jesse's cavalier approach to life and love is tested.

A cowboy-up moment drives the derelict dad to decide whether he'll saddle up and rescue his loved ones from menacing threats or retreat to the comforts of denial, avoidance, and blowing up watermelons with black-market machine guns. In this irreverent mid-life coming-of-age story, an unwitting hero wrestles with his capacity to mature into a bona fide adult.

This energetic and entertaining debut novel by Steve McCondichie is packed with dark humor and riveting suspense. It's a fast-paced, fun read that'll charm fans of contemporary American dramedy and satirical thrillers.
