Mouthpiece: It had been a long time since Mat Lawrence went to the city. Only something urgent could take him from his job deep in the desert managing construction of a mammoth power dam . . . something as urgent and shocking as the grisly murder of his father. The old man had been a big-time gangster. Straight-laced and hard-working, Mat had wanted nothing to do with such vices...but, he does share at least one family trait, a temper that propels him to exact revenge in the traditional family style. And so, with the "help" of his father's fast-talking criminal attorney, Mat goes after the culprits. But bullets, lies and bedlam follow when he finds himself neck-deep in trouble trying to single-handedly track down his father's killers and a million dollars gone missing.
