"[S]et in the days after Hurricane Katrina... [t]wo small-time ex-cons with big dreams get the idea that this would be the perfect time to rob a bank. Catch is, the bank is in New Orleans, and they're on parole in Houston. Now, as every sane person tries to get out of The Big Easy, Emmit and Dabny will do whatever it takes to get in. As they journey through a tide of human suffering, Dabny wants to help, and Emmit sees only the money. But a rogue commander of the ruthless security force "Dark Rain" has his sights set on taking down the same bank. If Emmit and Dabny don't outrace him, their last hope for a second chance could be washed away in the floodwaters-- along with their lives" -- from publisher's web site

Violence: Lots of death, mostly the aftermath of a natural disaster. Some characters kill eachother but it is not graphic

Definately shows the nasty side of private military contractors with the very title itself "Dark rain" being a thinly veiled reference to Blackwater Worldwide (which is now called Academi).One of the characters Emmit seems like an oppurtunist at first but actually attempted to steal from the bank he worked at under slightly misguided principles with the intention of setting up a micro-loan business for poor people.I'm not sure if it's implied in the ending if Dabny left for a different wife after disagreements with his previous one or if he just became close friends with the woman.
