An action-packed tale of murder, greed, and girl power set
on the Las Vegas strip.
A beautiful and resourceful pregnant lady only weeks from
her due date; the charming but disingenuous Dallas Cowboy
who fathered the baby; a white sadist who thinks he's
black; and a Superbowl betting slip worth a potential $1.25
million come together in a roller-coaster ride of dark
humor and suspense.
Reece Germaine is a successful PR professional entirely
capable of supporting the baby fathered by football
superstar Raygene Price during one wild Las Vegas weekend.
But Raygene's reluctance to provide his fair share of child
support ticks her off-until she remembers the betting slip
he bankrolled for her during this same weekend. If it pays
off, Reece will have plenty of reasons to forgive and
forget Raygene for good. But he's in a bind himself, as an
old homeboy is blackmailing him to the tune of $200,000.
Throw in Raygene's penny-pinching mama, his coddling agent,
and a professional troubleshooter hired to keep Raygene
from shooting himself in the foot, and you have a comic
noir of the highest order.
Teeming with an electric, off-kilter energy, Firecracker is
a lean and brutally funny thriller.
