Show synopsis A five year old boy witnessed a virtual life and death struggle between his mother and a potential rapist. He was to go on from that experience to a face to face encounter with a rabid dog and then to finish high school at sixteen, "almost" first in his class. At seventeen Connie Bob Funderburk Jr. went on to Atlanta to start life anew. There he had his first run-in (a violent encounter) with an unscrupulous businessman and later experienced what it was like to be the intended victim of two would be muggers. His (college) years included being seduced by some of Atlanta's socially well placed housewives as well as a surprise visit to an apartment where he found himself face to face with four homosexuals who had "plans" for him that evening. And of course he would never forget those visits with his favorite nymphomaniac. He also experienced terror in facing the irate husband of one of his lady "friends" of that fingerbowl district of Atlanta's Northside known as "Buchhead." Funderburk was to become well acquainted with the warm comfort of the little derringer nestled in his right front pocket along with his switchblade, both of which served him well on more than one occasion.
