Summary
Chronic drug addiction isn't just exclusive to the hood. There are plenty of dope fiends in the suburbs; just ask the mayor of Atlanta, the Honorable Josiah J. Bishop. His addiction to his wife, Mink, is just as powerful as her toxic love affair with heroin. As her life spirals out of control due to her obsession with the needle, his love and devotion to her is turning his world upside down. But he can't let her go. His loyalty to his drug-addicted wife and the mother of his two daughters is deeper than any ocean. No matter how far Mink drags Josiah down into the gutter of drugs, booze, and dangers on the streets, he's determined to love, cherish, and honor her until death--but whose death? Through constant infidelity, continuous disappearing acts, run-ins with the law, and countless unsuccessful rehab stints, Josiah still stands by his woman. The only thing Mink is faithful to is her next fix. She's a slave to smack because it allows her to escape the secret demons of her past which haunt her daily. Unfortunately, not even the love of a damn good man can set her free from emotional bondage. So, as Election Day quickly approaches, Josiah's bid to serve a second term in City Hall is jeopardized when Mink commits her most insane act. The scandal seems impossible for Atlanta's top dog to overcome. The media is going wild to cover the tragic murder of one of Mink's associates, a wealthy and prominent Hollywood filmmaker she hooked up with after leaving yet another treatment facility. She's on the run from justice, ignoring Josiah's public plea to turn herself in. Mink realizes she's at the end of her rope, and Josiah isn't sure if he has any more forgiveness in his heart for her. He has a critical decision to make. Will he stay in the clutches of addiction to the drug called Mink, or will he finally kick the habit once and for all
