For nearly four years, Bonnie's kept her head down and her hands clean, but that may be about to change, as she finds herself targeted by the activist group Red Front, a disgruntled local hitman, and a neo-Nazi "fixer" who remembers his past lives. Stir in a posse of homeless grifters and their psychopathic dog, add a conspiracy stretching from the newly formed Revolutionary Occupied Zone to the mansions of Cherry Heights, and top it off with the mother of all hangovers ...
