“There are four kinds of Homicide: felonious, excusable, justifiable, and praiseworthy.” —Ambrose Bierce
The system failed Tyler McDermitt. He and his brother have vowed to protect unfortunate youth from a similar fate—or at least make those responsible, pay. The McDermitt brothers, victims of child abuse and molestation, escaped their hell and have decided to clean up after the failings of a flawed justice system.
The rough streets of Dorchester, south Boston, have hardened two aspiring vigilantes and prepared them for a mission. Their mission will not be easy.
One brother has a good heart and a conscience. His twisted sense of morality has burdened him with a deep sense of responsibility. Responsibility, that he first took for his brother, is now compelling him on a grander level.
The other brother is as hard as nails and as cold as ice. He is hell-bent on revenge and aims to ensure the other stays the course.
A motivated young detective is on their scent; she and her veteran partner look to foil McDermitt brothers’ plan.
Something from the boys’ past—something dark—is also closing in.
