"After five years in prison, AJ Gurney-one of Detroit's legendary wheelmen and the ladies' favorite bad boy-is free, and he's decided it's time to go straight. But during a simple visit to the bank, AJ is recognized by two violent bank robbers, and they demand AJ be their driver. To ensure his compliance, they take a young female hostage. Unfortunately, she just happens to be the daughter of a Russian crime lord. AJ now finds himself pursued by the police and hunted by every asset of the Russian mob. Without a doubt, he's in a very hard place. Collects THE HARD PLACE #1-5."
