Roy Telfair and Joe Jared Early are not unlike the heroes of Robert B. Parker's heroes in his 1880s western novels. It's 2012 and they are home in the north Georgia mountains. Roy has had MP training; Joe Jared needs a job. They become sheriff's deputies in Cavendish county where, because of their excellent performance in a variety of assignments, they are accepted as agents of the Zell Miller Parkway Drug Task Force. Roy leads Joe Jared and his fellow agents in finding and destroying the methamphetamine production and distribution in their territory.
