The Old Turk's Load
Angelo DiNoto is the most powerful crime lord in New Jersey, his empire sustained by pure heroin from the poppies of an old Turkish farmer. That is, until a $5 million dollar shipment goes missing.
Richard Mundi, a shady developer, sees the lost heroin as capital infusion for his failing business. His daughter Gloria, literally in bed with would-be revolutionaries, thinks it’s her ticket out. “Mailman”, a long-time postal clerk dying of cancer, believes finding the heroin would be perfect ending to a failed life. Add in punch-drunk P.I. Kelly, hired by Mundi to tail Gloria, Kelly’s young protégé, two brothers working as DiNoto’s enforcers, and a conflicted collections agent, and you have an Elmore Leonard-esque cast of characters running rampant—until all threads lead to an unforgettable showdown over the old Turk’s load.
