Summary
Mr. Beaumont is a hard-drinking middle-aged Texan with little to his credit, besides a tendency to look on the brighter side of failure, is selling off assets in a half-hearted attempt to salvage his faltering advertising agency. The sudden, serendipitous appearance of an affluent new client commanding hefty six-figure commissions promises to boost Beaumont's fortunes, but the deal soon starts to tighten around his neck. Coerced by blackmail and intimidation, Beaumont finds himself partaking in what he suspects are illegal dealings. Not that he is thoroughly unhappy about these shady escapades: a would-be adventurer and eternal ham, he likes living on the edge; it gives him something to joke about--Publishers Weekly
