Description

Anyone who knows him will tell you that Mark Torrence is a decent man--a dedicated father, a person whose ingrained honesty and integrity is evident in his every action and all his personal dealings.

Ask James Bracken, however, and he'll describe a very different Torrence: a rat who squealed, then vanished into the Witness Protection Program; a traitor who ticked off powerful people who don't forget and never forgive; an untrustworthy lowllife who needs to die. For once upon a time, Mark Torrence was not a pillar of his society--he was not even Mark Torrence. In a previous New York City life, he was Tommy Torelli, an associate of wiseguys who made their bones through violence, extortion, thieveryand much worse. Bracken-a world class hit man with a swollen bank account--is willing to take Torrence/Torelli down gratis, in order to satisfy inner demons that will be appeased only by vengeance and with blood. And he's ready to eliminate anyone who stands between him and his well-hidden target.

As Torrence's paranoia grows to unmanageable proportions--as he senses an ever--closing circle of terror getting tighter and tighter around him--he realizes that his new identity has become a liabilityand that the only way to survive is to become something he despises: the man he once was. Because now only Tommy Torelli can save Mark Torrence and his family--and perhaps even salvage a small part of the new life he built out of the ruins. But the price might well be his soul.
