When the call came in the middle of the night, Camden, New Jersey Detective Sergeant Joseph Macuzak felt his fifty-five years as he jokes with his wife about no time for showers for pigs. After twenty-four plus years on the force, Joseph is near retirement, but will not be coasting as James Sullivan, Attorney-at-Law, left his business card behind after executing five drug dealers.

Because of the James the vigilant link and the illegal drug connection, FBI Agent Roger Sorenson takes charge of the investigation. Their superior assigns Joseph and his long time partner, George Whitcomb, to the task force. As they search for James, the two veteran cops find their empathy lies with him rather than their pompous leader. While knowing that the confrontation between the “good” people and the “bad” dude seems imminent, Joseph and George wonder what ultimately pushed James over the edge to take the law in his own hands while also admiring the man's courage, tenacity, and intelligence.

The story centers on the relationships between criminals and cops. The story line is action-packed and fast-paced in a zany way yet surprisingly the characters make the tale work.
