Be Bad Now
by Hock Hochheim
In the 1980s, a lone Texas detective takes on the bastardized brotherhood of the Northeastern Mafia and Cowboy Mafia. In the 1980's a recession stampedes Texas. The oil industry dries up, laying high rollers low and sending the entire state of Texas into a tornado-like downspin. Northern mobsters invade these cracks in the Lone Star State. Their schemes: corruption, loan sharking, gambling, extortion, drug and human trafficking, and murder for hire -- all backed with strong arms swinging bats, psychos pointing guns, torture, violence and death. The city of West Forge, a stone's throw from Houston, is Sgt. Jumpin' Jack Kellog's town. And when organized crime seeps in, Kellog's brand of justice knows no bounds. He tracks, fights, kicks and shoots his way through conspiracies, threats, ambushes and showdowns. Pushed to near-madness by angst with informants inside his agency and lurking everywhere, Jack tackles the thugs, bosses, lawyers, politicians and businessmen on the mob payroll, in a battle that takes him from the swamps of Louisiana, to the ghettos of Houston, to casinos in Vegas and even through the Halls of Congress in Washington D.C. Can Kellog beat the Yankee Mafia? Beat the Cowboy Mafia? Their Crime Confederation? How bad is bad enough when you must Be Bad Now?
