Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) July 30, 2010
Reddick Adams was raised with traditional values. However, during his tenure as a diplomat, he finds that those values are no longer viable in a society guided by greed, selfishness, deception, and the lust for power. Feeling betrayed, Reddick is determined to get even. So he begins to groom his son, Crassius, to be the instrument of his revenge. But Crassius is not up to the task. He falters at every step.
Being “squeezed” by the Mexican Mafia, cut off financially by his father, abandoned by friends and associates, and sensing his marriage is being threatened by a former university acquaintance, Crassius feels cornered on all sides. His world is crumbling, and his reaction is bound to be extreme.
