I don't exactly know where I am going with this story exactly, but I have a list of about 10 characters and their reasons for being in the story. I was wondering if the plot I am currently going to go with is too much or is even any good. This idea is this: The story starts off in the middle. The narrator, a 30 year old man named Danny Murphy who is second in command to one of the most powerful drug lords on the east coast of America, is in an interrogation room with a DEA agent named West. Danny and West make a deal where if Danny eliminates or helps West bring in his employer and the other drug lord who has kidnapped his brother, Danny can get off free. The story then goes into the past by Danny telling West the story of the past few days in which his friend who is fresh out of prison and his protector go and attempt to save Danny's brother from his mess (also explains how Danny's brother got into the mess) with the aid of his employer and his employer's brother who, like his employer is a father figure to him after his father, his employer's attorney, was murdered. Then it goes past where we are at in the beginning where Danny attempts to again get his brother back, but this time isn't by complying with the rules of the kidnapper. Mayhem ensues all throughout. I apologize for the poor explanation, so much is running through my head about this, so much that I couldn't even figure out what I wanted to write about on paper (so much runs through my head that I feel just letting myself write works better than attempting to map things out).
