Janie's got a gun: an unlicensed shiny, silver security blanket. Now eighteen, Janie is days away from entering the Flowers of God, a uniquely Southern California cult that is the brainchild of Eden, a.k.a. Jeremy Snipes, the vilified and feared former host of the wildly successful television talk show, Trash Talk. Eden discovered God while serving jail time for statutory rape, where he miraculously transformed from lascivious con man to celestial sage.Sharon, Janie's mother, is a steely narcissist who has hired a ruthless team of deprogrammers to find and return Janie to her rightful owner. But everything changes when John, a forty-year-old screenwriter stumbles upon Sharon's plan and decides to intercept Janie before the deprogrammers can. In a split-second, life-changing decision to save Janie from her fate, John discovers a point of resolve and certainty in his own life.Bang! is a love story: the relationship between an eighteen-year-old girl and a man caught in a mid-life crisis. A fast-paced black comedy, it confronts the complex issues of sex, morality, good, evil and salvation.
