Wild Turkey

Phil Lansdale has problems. He's out of a job, his son's a pyromaniac, and his wife is running out of excuses as to why she comes home six hours late from work every night.

In his newly appointed house-husband position, Phil learns that when you have a lot of time on your hands, you begin to notice your neighbors, their intricate nuances, and the discord created by someone who doesn't follow the normal routine-like the long and sexy neighbor across the street, Cassandra Payne.
Phil and his new found friend, Bryan, an ex-detective who lives next door, have been keeping tabs on Cassandra. But when Cassandra's husband is gunned down, Phil and Bryan realize that the beautiful Cassandra might be hiding more beneath that eensy-weensy miniskirt than meets the eye, and Phil finds himself drawn into the dark and mysterious world of Cassandra Payne.

With a bottle of bourbon and a full tank of gas, Phil sets out to find the gunman and discovers the truth in a world where some men are men, some are wild, and some are only turkeys.
