Not that he wouldve had anywhere to drive to. When he was fifteen, America was one of the poorest countries in the world, and its citizens took their hatred of that fact out on each other through gangs and violence. Children that were barely tall enough for carnival rides peppered the streets selling drugs (or themselves) so they could buy their next meal.Every night on the news, Cain watched as an angelic blonde woman who lost her own child swore shed end it. She assaulted Americas televisions with praise for the Parental Morality Law: a set of rules that spells out exactly what it takes to be a parent in the eyes of the government, and the consequences of breaking those rules. He prayed every night that she would come and rescue him before his father took his belt off again.Before she could save him, Cain faced a fatal choice: fight back or die on the basement floor.He chose life.Now on the run, he finds himself being hunted by a police officer with his own special brand of torture. Before he can save even a handful of children who have been swept up in the gang life, he must first cover up not one, but two murders: his fathers, and one committed by a teenage madam who is either the love of his life, or his final undoing. As he feels himself being pushed further and further to the edge, he realizes that surviving his father was just the beginning.
