Summary (From the publisher):

Home from Iraq and still reeling from his discharge, Jason Palmer plans to spend the summer drinking too much and chasing girls. But when his brother is brutally murdered, Jason is all that stands between his eight-year-old nephew and a pair of ruthless killers with a mysterious agenda. As he struggles to protect all that remains of his family, Jason finds himself embroiled in something much larger than a simple quest for justice. Chicago is burning, set ablaze by gang warfare and the passions of wicked men, and the battle for Jason’s South Side neighborhood is looking more and more like the war he just left. Now, in a city where corruption is simply the cost of doing business, where issues of race and class smolder just beneath the surface, Jason will be forced to face the mistakes of yesterday to fight for a better tomorrow. Marcus Sakey fulfills his promise in this dark thriller that probes the underbelly of America’s meanest streets—and the costs of our deepest bonds.
