For the Viel and Powers families, revenge served cold is not on the menu. Fuelled by a long-standing feud between the clan patriarchs, nothing less than hot-blooded vengeance will do... When Sean is called to the bedside of his dying father in Atlanta, he never expects what is waiting for him there. In the hospital room he learns Walter, the man who raised him, isn’t his father. Walter tells Sean the story about his true parents and a feud between two families, a feud that goes horribly wrong. Gregory Powers and Skipper Viel hold reign over a network of powerful Toronto business interests. For years the balance of power has remained intact. But when Powers discovers the love affair between his daughter, Jenn, and the young Marshall Viel, son of his enemy, a deadly game tips the balance. In a violent power play, he decides to have her lover killed, sending a clear signal to his nemesis, Skipper Viel. In hot-blooded retaliation, Viel arranges a hit on the Powers’ family, drawing a special target on the head of Gregory Powers’ most prized possession: his daughter. Rocky –trusted bodyguard and driver with a few shady connections of his own – escapes with Jenn to the presumed safety and anonymity of Lockport, New York. But no place on Earth is safe from all-out revenge. As the assassins close in, Rocky narrowly escapes with baby Sean and goes into hiding, creating a new identity. Disappearing into another world, he is able to raise Sean in peace for many years. Faced with this incredible story, Sean decides to go to Canada – out of curiosity about his family roots and a growing need for some act of revenge for the past, to seek atonement for the parents that were lost to him. What he finds when he gets there will force him to make a choice: to succumb to the path set before him by heritage, or to turn away and forego the desire for vengeance pulsing in his veins?
