When a man doesn’t give a damn if he lives or dies, he’s at his most dangerous. The Government Mule is the story of George Mihelich, a man driven to the edge of hell, where surrendering to death is the preferred way out -- by most people.
Once a heralded and highly sought-after all-star quarterback, happily married to his high school sweetheart, George Mihelich sat by while the world around him disintegrated into a despotic dictatorship. For years, he went along just to get along until the man who now makes the rules, a power-hungry, amoral narcissist and childhood friend of Mihelich, decided to take from Mihelich something he long coveted. That was a mistake.
The only way to stop this tyrant is to attempt a perilous long-shot: Mihelich has to change the rules and hit back where it hurts. To do so, he must re-embrace the credo he once lived by:
Never give up, never surrender.
"Incredibly surprised it was so different from Johnny Mee's previous books. I was riveted from the first words and found myself annoyed when I had to set the book down for any reason."
"This book is a page turner!!!"

The story captured my imagination and slid me into the intrigue with Billy Mack. An engrossing plot.
