No one ever said the road to redemption couldn't be underground.
For as long as he can remember, forty-year-old Thad Jaggenschweif has been the family’s eternal black sheep. Since dropping out of high school, he’s been adrift for decades. After finishing a ten month prison term at Walpole Penitentiary for possession with intent to distribute, his options are limited. So when his older brother—a successful civil engineer, the parent’s eternal golden child, and husband to the beautiful Marissa—unexpectedly begs Thad to come home, he surprises everyone, including himself, and agrees.
He expects a chance to understand where and why his life had gone so wrong. He expects a chance to redeem himself. But he doesn't expect his brother to blackmail him into digging a seventy yard tunnel, originating from his childhood basement. And he doesn’t expect his sister-in-law Marissa to attempt to seduce him at every opportunity.
But what he least expects is that his only path to redemption has long since been determined, and it lies at the end of the tunnel.
