As an investigative reporter, Ron McKee didn’t expect to be fired for reporting the truth, but truth is inconvenient for the corrupt, local sheriff, and so it becomes for Ron. Still, he takes it all in stride until he finds his wife has run off with their son.
After taking his frustrations out on his wife’s lover, and following up with a deadly run-in with a group of local hooligans, Ron finds himself on the run and things only get worse with every decision he makes. Ron’s attempts to stay ahead of an ensuing law enforcement dragnet take him and his prized Harley-Davidson “Betsy” on a punishing journey through the backwoods of Alabama to the Carolina mountains. Just as he feels he’s run far enough and hopes to return home he has a run-in with “Thor’s Hammer,” a motorcycle gang of combat-hardened military veterans who use skills learned from the “Global War on Terror” to run an untouchable, multi-state criminal empire.
Ron must try to steer clear of the maniac bikers long enough to rebuild the battered Betsy and himself, before he can return home to clear his name. Even if he survives the wrath of Thor’s Hammer, he still has to race home to face the murderous sheriff who now has his son and wife in “protective custody,” all while a Category-Three hurricane tears apart his hometown.
