Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Maximum Bob

Palm Beach County judge Bob Isum Gibbs, alias BIG, is a hated man. An oversexed, racist redneck, nicknamed "Maximum Bob" for his sentencing preferences, Judge Gibbs's enemies-list of miscreants and malfeasants is a mile long.

One of these men, a psychopathic gator-poacher named Elvin Crowe, who recently completed his Gibbs-mandated sentence for shooting the wrong man (it's a long story), has just accepted a murder contract on Judge Gibbs from another felon, a former doctor sentenced to house-arrest by BIG.

Now, Elvin's probation officer, Kathy Baker, must fend off alligators, automatic rifles, and Maximum Bob's wandering hands to protect His Honor from his very own hitman.
