His first private job was to bodyguard a gaggle of Saudi princes and right away Wags was on a roll: debt collections, a blackmail case, and a divorce surveillance that gives new meaning to the phrase "man's best friend"; movie stars, private jets, car chases, even a helicopter getaway under fire during an international child custody kidnapping.
As the stories pile up, the money gets better and the players get bigger...until he settles in as security chief of an upscale strip club and suddenly finds himself trapped between the Mafia and a psychotic enforcer for the Russian mob.
An up-close-and-personal look at a world we rarely see, from an honest-to-God character whose walk on the wild side ended up on the wrong side of the law.
