From the screenwriter of the Oscar-nominated House of Sand and Fog comes a fierce,
elegant page-turner about race, money, and the American Dream.
JW is a small-town banker; his specialty, teaching other
bankers in towns near Indian reservations how to profit from casino deposits
without exposing themselves to risk; his problem, he lost his son in a car
accident a year ago, he’s depressed, his wife is leaving him, and he can’t stop
When he is caught embezzling funds to support his addiction,
JW’s boss offers him a choice: he can either accept responsibility and go to
prison or use his talents to sabotage a competing Native American banker named
Johnny Eagle. With the clock ticking, JW moves into a trailer on the
reservation within sight of his prey. But as he befriends Eagle and his son, JW
finds that his plan to reclaim his freedom will be more dangerous than he ever
could have imagined. Download and start listening now!
