Frankie Cavenash, a well-to-do salesman is arrested for a white collar crime. Frankie has a secret, though.Warning: This ebook contains course language and mature subject matter.Here is a preview:The man chuckled again, and Frankie realized he was coming to hate the sound of the man’s laughter.

“This is just where people get booked, man. This isn’t jail.” The big man stood and stretched. “This is the loop, and it’s the worst thing you’ll have to deal with. Once we get through this, then it’s just relaxing time.”“If I can get to a phone, I’ll be out. We got plenty of money for bail.”The big man nodded at him- at least Frankie was pretty sure he was nodding.

“That kind of crime doesn’t come with big bail amounts. You won’t know what your bail is for a few hours, though.”“Fuck, man. My son was supposed to pick me up in a few hours on Lakeside. I was hoping to be out before then.”“How old is your son?”“Seventeen.”“There’s no way, man. I mean, there could be a miracle and you could know your bail and it could all happen in three or four hours, but it ain’t likely.”Frankie sighed.

“Fuck.” Thankfully, the man didn’t laugh. “You been arrested before?”“Shit man, I been arrested all the time since I was fourteen. It ain’t shit.”Frankie didn’t know how to respond to that, so he just remained silent.

The door to the cell opened. “Charles Britt.” The deputy came into the light a bit. “Either of you guys Charles Britt?”The big man said, “Nah, man.”The deputy turned to Frankie. “Who are you?”“Frank Cavenash.”“All right.” The deputy left and Frankie felt a sinking sadness at his exit. Perhaps the worst of it was the realization that at this moment he had more in common with the criminal sharing his cell than with the police officer.
