Jesse Parish just took a wrong turn. A down-and-out musician with a bad dug habit, he's stumbled on a drug deal gone awry and found himself a suitcase full of money, which he aims to keep. But where's a bum, with a fortune worth killing for, to go? Jesse heads home to Galveston, Texas, to the people he deserted seven years ago when he left in search of fame and fortune. But drug money brings nothing but trouble and the people who want their money back. No living thing is going to get in their way, at least no living thing that'll stay alive for long. Jesse has risked everything for easy money, only to discover, there's no such thing. It'll cost more than he can afford in the lives of people who loved him. And if he wants to live to see tomorrow, only three words can keep him alive; DON'T LOOK BACK.
