Ordell Whitebread Robbie makes a fine living selling illegal high-powered weaponry to the wrong people. Jackie Burke couriers Ordell's profits from Freeport to Miami. But the feds are on to Jackie and now the aging but still hot flight attendant will have to do prison time or play ball, which makes her a prime loose end that Ordell needs to tie up permanently. Jackie, however, has other options. And with the help of Max Cherry an honest but disgruntled bail bondsman looking to get out she could even end up with a serious nest egg in the process.
