Back in the day, the mere mention of the name Ruslan was enough to make mob bosses tremble with fear. But these days Ruslan has put down his gun and picked up a pen; he's a best-selling author, and he's given up his violent ways. That all changes the day that Ruslan returns home for his daughter's wedding, only to discover that she has been murdered in a violent home invasion. Now, in order to ensure that justice is served, the grieving father will return to the world he thought he had left behind forever.
