Only the Rain
When family man and war veteran Russell loses his job as a quarry worker, his life suddenly seems more like a waking nightmare than a chance to finally live the American dream. Facing bills, a new baby, and a bone-dry bank account, he's got nothing left to lose. Russell comes to the rescue of a naked stranger dancing in the rain, and what was supposed to be a straightforward good deed turns into a spiral of danger. When Russell finds an enticing stash of money in the woman's house, he knows the cash could be his only hope. Taking just a handful will save his family's future.
His "victimless crime" seems to be anything but risky--until the criminals he robbed come looking for their dirty money. Russell's ready to surrender it, but then his daughter gets sick...and he must choose between saving her or giving the devils their due. Someone's going to pay. The question is, how much?
