After serving time for the attempted murder of a District Attorney, disgraced former cop Joe Denton returns home looking for redemption. An embarrassment to his parents and abandoned by his ex-wife, it seems as if things can’t get much worse. But then Joe finds himself trapped in the mess he left behind—in the cross fire between a crooked sheriff, the vengeful DA, and a mafia kingpin who knows too much.
Delightfully suspenseful and blackly comic, "Small Crimes" follows Joe’s desperate and misguided attempts to extract himself from this nightmare, only to dig himself into a deeper—and bloodier—hole.
