Synopsis

It was a simple plan. Andy Larson, a veteran of The Great War, who is now a North Dakota cop along with four close friends, will highjack a truckload of bootleg booze coming in from Canada. During prohibition, these trucks ran with the regularity of buses, overwhelming all government attempts to stop them. And to Larson, stealing from crooks wasn’t really a crime. Everything goes wrong when after months of meticulous planning the men actually take down a whiskey truck. An unexpected guard with a Tommy gun kills one of Larson’s friends. After the ensuing bloody shootout, all four whiskey runners lie dead. When a shaken Larson and his remaining companions unload the whiskey, they find the reason for the increased security. Hidden in the whiskey on the truck is sixty thousand dollars in gold coins belonging to Al “Scarface” Capone. The notorious gangster is not only infuriated; his reputation can only be maintained by making examples of anyone who dares challenge his rule. Very dead and very public examples. Capone’s combination of rewards and threats ignites a furious hunt for his stolen gold along with the perpetrators of the daring deed. The hardest task Andy Larson will ever face is saving his remaining friends while trying to stay alive himself…
