The only sure way to destroy a man is to take what he cannot live without.
Three years ago, I had everything.
A beautiful wife.
A reason for living.
Until a ruthless task force, assembled under Mayor Michael Culling, with a brutal strategy to make the streets of Detroit 'safe', ripped away everything I loved in a deadly hunt called The Culling.
They tried to kill me, too. I wish they had. Now I'm cursed by the memories of that night, and the words I whispered to my dying wife.
A promise-to avenge the wrong and set it right.
I'm no longer Nick Ryder. I'm a masked vigilante. Faceless. Loveless. Fearless. A man with nothing left to lose-one who's seen the dark and violent truth behind the city's flawless veneer.
Michael Culling doesn't know who I am. Or what I want. All he knows is that I've kidnapped his beautiful wife.
An eye for an eye-isn't that how the saying goes? And Aubree Culling is the perfect pawn to destroy him.
If she doesn't destroy me first.
