display_description On the same day that Roy Cady is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he senses that his boss, a dangerous loan-sharking bar-owner, wants him dead. So when a routine assignment turns out to be a deathtrap, Roy is ready. After a smoking spasm of violence, his would-be killers are mostly dead and he is mostly alive. Before Roy makes his getaway, he realizes there are two women present, one of them still breathing. He takes her with him as he goes on the run from New Orleans to Galveston, Texas -- an action as ill-advised as it is inescapable. The girl's name is Rocky, and she is too young, too tough, too sexy -- and far too much trouble. Roy, Rocky, and her sister hide in the battered seascape of Galveston's country-western bars and fleabag hotels, a world of treacherous drifters, pickup trucks, and ashed-out hopes. Any chance that they will find safety there is soon lost. Rocky is a girl with quite a story to tell, one that will pursue and damage Roy for a very long time to come.
