Scrapping With The Mob describes the adventures of recent college grad Johnathan Michaels as he goes to work for a scrap metal dealer and how he finds himself entangled with a Las Vegas mob-run casino and all the dangers that come with the territory.
A Midwestern transplant, Johnathan discovers that there are many opportunities to do what is right and wrong when he lands his post-college job, an opportunity that could prove too good to be true. As the plot unfolds, the characters and situations he encounters become more outlandish and life-threatening until Johnathan finds himself at a crossroads.
