What would you do with 45 million dollars?Cliff Trask and his friend, Tommy, are an unlikely pair of drifters with some unusual resources. When they try to score a couple of free coffees to start their day, they are assaulted and abused by a self-entitled hedge-fund manager in an upscale coffee shop. Thinking a bit of revenge is in order, they steal the man's identity, empty his bank accounts, and donate the proceeds to charity. What you don't know can indeed hurt you, and they end up with way more money and way more trouble than they bargained for. A roller-coaster ride full of fun, thrills, humor, and suspense - with a dash of romance. The revenge plan goes off the rails in weird and wondrous ways. An odd-ball cast, including a gaggle of beautiful divorcees, a crooked cop, a Colombian drug cartel, a pudgy assassin who loves romance novels, and a self-styled Caribbean witch who runs a backwater brothel, propel events from Miami Beach, through Colombia, Trinidad, and back in a frantic race to find the missing money and exact a bloody retribution. As if that weren't enough, the whole thing plays out on a South Beach based reality TV show about Miami Beach divorcees embroiled in uproarious high jinks and infidelity. Will Cliff and Tommy wind up dead at the hands of ice-pick wielding killer, El Colmillo, or will they marshal their collective street savvy to escape their awful fate? A Cup of Pending is a laugh-stoked romp with a host of quirky characters and events that would be unlikely in any other locale, but seem perfectly at home in the sun-drenched, sex-obsessed confines of South Beach and the Florida Gold Coast. Don't miss this delicious tale of vengeance gone so wrong it just feels right!
