Short Summary

Military contractor Kyle Logan’s luck has gone from bad to worse ever since he returned home to Philadelphia following an injury by an IED in Iraq. Kyle’s shady best friend turns up and offers him a “once in a lifetime” chance to regain his job and his life, all for just a couple night’s work.


Kyle figured he had nothing to lose but the police, Philly Irish Mob and a couple of drug cartels all think otherwise. Forced to fight for his life, and those around him, Kyle turns to allies from his old neighborhood in a desperate effort to stay alive and out of prison.
