Let the Good Prevail
by Logan and Noah Miller
Small-town boys Caleb and Jake Boyd spend their days splitting logs and barely scraping by in the badlands of New Mexico. Caleb, a decorated war hero, wants to put his fighting days behind him, find a decent job, and start a quiet life with his new fiancé. But his brother Jake is always dreaming bigger than he should, and when he stumbles across a large crop of marijuana hidden in the wilderness, he thinks he has finally hit the jackpot. It turns out that stealing the harvest is about the worst get-rich-quick scheme Jake has ever had, and before long, the brothers find themselves on a collision course with a vicious drug cartel, its eccentric kingpin (a professional dancer-turned-gangster who walks barefoot among the mesas), and a corrupt, cocaine-addled sheriff (who also happens to be Caleb’s future father-in-law). Violence and mayhem ensue, hurtling the brothers on a tragic journey toward an unexpected end.
A gripping, unconventional thriller reminiscent of A History of Violence and No Country For Old Men, but with a voice all its own, Let the Good Prevail offers a fresh take on the timeless theme of revenge, set amid the harsh beauty, and reality, of the contemporary West.
