Just back from the war in Iraq with problems of his own, Jason Palmer didn't recognize the gangbanger who jumped him, and after escaping, he was willing to live and let live - until his older brother was murdered. Amidst the charred ruins of his brother's bar, fire investigators find darker spots. Spots mean accelerant, and accelerant means arson. Yet the police seem willing to chalk it up as just another burned-out dive on another South Side street.

Haunted, still reeling from his discharge from the Army, all Jason wanted was to spend the summer drinking too much and chasing girls. Instead, he is drawn into a fight he never imagined. Someone is hunting his eight-year-old nephew. Gangs are running rampant, and the neighborhood is under siege. What begins as a simple quest for justice soon spirals out of control as the war raging here starts to seem like the one Jason just left - because this isn't the work of an ordinary street gang. And the forces behind it will stop at nothing to maintain their secrecy.

After all, this is Chicago, where corruption is the cost of doing business; where issues of race and class smolder just beneath the surface. Download and start listening now!

    " Not as good as Sakey's debut novel. The Army subplot was way overdone, and the plot was the really overconvoluted mess that is really predictable grist used by Hollywood all the time. "

    " This one wasn't nearly as interesting as Sakey's other books. It seemed to repeat itself over and over and seemed to be trying to convey a message more than tell a story. "
