Boogie Nights Meets Have Gun Will Travel
Pete McGregor, a flamed-out Scot in Atlanta, is beaten half to death one night when he's mistaken for a slippery con man. Five years later, he returns as the wealthy Boss MacTavin, head of Boss Corrections...and the world's first Southern Scot. Boss has a specific Correction in mind for the con man who cost him an eye. But the con man, he learns, had been set up in turn by someone who feared the rogue might know too much. The vengeance trail takes a dark turn into the murderous union of Atlanta's adult film business and the INS. And this rugged Southern Scot soon learns he only thought he knew the meaning of absolute evil. But he''ll need to survive his new partners to live: Dodge, the con man who wants to go home...and Vivian, who' seeks revenge for the death of her sister, a porn star. The suspense has just begun.
--Pete McGregor was ashamed of his Scottish origins. Boss MacTavin's accent is a defiant blend of Southern Scotch: 'a cross between the Butler Boys--you know, Gerard and Rhett?'
--Boss represents my rebellion against the 6'5", 250-pound gorillas who dominate the scene. A former fattie, he's 6'1, 160 pounds of ripped, lean muscle. To stay thin, he eats one meal a day. And God help anyone who stands in the way of his breakfast.
--The Have Gun Will Travel parallels all have their own spins: Boss has his own singular card...He acquires new clients in an ingenious new way...And he has his own colors--red and confederate gray, not black. While tipping his hat, Boss remains his own man.
