It's 1971, and outlaw driver Calvin McGraw is grooming his 19-year-old son Webb to uphold the family name. Drugs, money, people-the McGraws drive anything and everything.

When a delivery goes wrong, Calvin steps knee-deep in a turf war between his employer, the Stanleys, and a rival Midwestern crime syndicate, but his week gets a whole lot worse when Webb-on his first solo job-loses the cargo.

Praise for LEADFOOT:

"With Leadfoot, Beetner proves he is the one true master of the modern pulp novel." -Crimespree Magazine

"Beetner populates Leadfoot with characters as rich and lively as any Elmore Leonard novel, and when Beetner punches the gas, you can almost see the McGraw's middle fingers flying as they invite us all along for the ride." -Brian Panowich, author of Bull Mountain

"A hell of a fun book. Crazy families, fast cars, a classic crime-it's just an all-around good time. Fast, funny and thrilling on a classic level." -Steph Post, author of A Tree Born Crooked and Lightwood

Praise for Eric Beetner:

"To be blunt, he's the 21st century's answer to Jim Thompson." -LitReactor
