You know Anselm Teel from a ways back. When you helped him that last time, he was working out of… Lubbock? Amarillo? Plainview? Not quite the boondocks, but definitely Boondock-adjacent.
He needed help from someone with a "particular set of skills." And he paid pretty well. But things didn't go according to the plan (do they ever?). Shit got weird and he saved your life. Now he's calling in that favor.
