Pigs are smarter than dogs and politicians, especially in Texas. Katya Karam is smarter than all of them put together. She is the power behind Hartmann Slate's San Antonio based financial empire. When the FBI stacks the deck against Hartmann and takes it all from him, all seems lost. However, Eleanor, his dead wife, left Hartmann a legacy of FBI files that might help him survive. The stolen legacy is an instruction manual for Edgar Hoover's modus operandi! All Hartmann has to do is find it! Manchester Buchanan his former father-in-law and the FBI Director, wants the stolen files returned. Hartmann denies all knowledge of them but Manchester pursues him relentlessly anyway. Drunken accidents of fate and loyal friends finally find the files but Hartmann is now incapacitated by alcoholism. Ghosts and booze try to stop Hartmann from seeking revenge and salvation as he is hunted like a wounded deer by corrupt FBI agents, in the brush country near Laredo, Texas. Katya's unrequited love for Hartmann and her lust for power just might save his ass!
