As the swinging '60s turn into the '70s, Billy Glasheen is stuck in the slow lane. He's deep in debt to the mob, driving a taxi, running low-level rackets. One day he finds a trashy novel in his cab - and he's the main character! Only Max could've written it, his double-crossing ex-partner in crime. Except Max went up in flames after a bank job, along with the cash. If Max is alive, Billy has a score to settle. If he didn't get burned up, maybe the money didn't either. Billy follows the clues, and discovers he's not the only one on the trail.
