Merle Hench is an enforcer for a San Fernando mob outfit, twenty years ago he had a decent reputation as a pro-boxer, but that was then. Cool and soft spoken, Merle’s an anachronism, a man out of place and out of time.
He’s set up to take the fall for a multi-million dollar heist of a rival mob boss. A habitual gambler on a twenty year losing streak, Merle’s luck turns as he survives the trap and winds up with a piece of the take and the girl. Merle might have been content to just disappear and spend his windfall with Jacqueline.
But the betrayal of his twenty years of loyalty snapped something inside. Merle Hench, otherwise known as the Butcher, has learned to live and let live to keep on going, but not this time.
Everyone thought his nickname was a joke. What they didn’t know was that Merle had a dark side, a secret past that earned that awful name. Underestimating Merle Hench would be their biggest mistake.
Every dog has his day...
The Butcher will have his.
