Returning home to New York brings with it memories of childhood, many of them painful, and yet Harper could never have prepared himself for the truth. Confronted with the reality of his father's existence, Harper finds himself seduced by a lifestyle that he seems to have inherited--an underworld life of power, treachery, and menace.
