Abstract:

Ex-secret service agent Cole Springer has money and time on his hands. He doesn't mind the money part but the extra time has him restless and bored. That's about to change. L.A. grifter "Spider" John Dupree has a plan to relieve Springer of the extra cash.

With the help of a Denver mob soldier, a hood with a violent streak as big as the Rockies, Dupree tries to shake down Springer by threatening to go to Mob bosses and reveal how Springer amassed his fortune. Blackmail. Pay or die. But Springer isn't an easy mark. And he's hard to scare. Or kill.
