It’s time to take America back. And only organized crime can do it.
When a gambler tries to pay a bookie with food stamps, the Mafia realizes the liberal entitlement society has gone too far.
With half the country on some sort of government assistance, disposable income is disappearing. And without disposable income, the Mob will soon be out of business.
Three New Jersey Mafia families decide to band together to take control of the country. To do so they must get 12 liberals who are destroying the country with a progressive agenda “out of the way.” A “hit list” that will lead to the ultimate target, the socialist President.
But this is the new Mob, using brains and technology instead of bullets. And they have a not-so-secret weapon: a United States Senator who happens to be a blood relative.
And blood is thicker than politics.
He’s death for hire…
Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.
She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.
