Summary (From the publisher):

Austin Tucker was a Green Beret, a man with lightening reflexes and the training to use them. His life was shattered on Thanksgiving night when strangers invaded his home and killed his family. Tucker was never able to convince anyone that strangers had incinerated his daughter, killed his wife, and ritually sacrificed his son. He went to prison for it. Derek Waites was once an outlaw computer hacker, the infamous Captain Africa. Now he designs games, and works hard to make a living good enough to support his son and daughter, and win back his estranged wife. But one Saturday afternoon someone tried to kidnap his son while his daughter cried a warning and nearly burst into flames. The two men can have nothing in common - Tucker is a white man from the suburbs, an ally of the Aryan Brotherhood in prison, a killer with very little left to lose. Waites is a black street-hustler trying to go straight, with little use for the power structure and a very healthy fear of White Supremacists. But there is a powerful link between them, forged two hundred years before; forged in the brutality of their ancestors' lives on the same southern plantation. Two hundred years ago, an African sorcerer bought his freedom by teaching his white master the secret of immortality - immortality won through the blood sacrifice of one's own children. Austin Tucker's children, and Derek Waites's children, are descendants of that immortal slave-owner. Ten years before, Austin's son was chosen for the sacrifice. Now it is Derek's boy's turn.
