A great story. An ordinary, older, decent man starts picking at a loose thread when his job as a volunteer firefighter lets him hear the last words of the victim of a road accident. Knowing the victim's nature, he cannot see him driving so dangerously he would veer off the road. Could the last words of the dying man, 'umvee' mean he merely was the victim of a hit and run? The truth is much worse.
There is violence but it is somewhat neutrally described, as is a short sexual episode. Women can also enjoy this men's adventure if they (we) can shrug at bad things mentioned but not elaborated.
