SOME DEBTS CAN ONLY BE PAID IN BLOOD
Still mourning the loss of his wife, Jimmy Kavanagh lives quietly in the backwoods of New England, raising his devoted daughter and resentful teenage son. But fate has come calling in the worst possible way, as Jimmy's criminal past threatens to destroy his entire family- raising the spectre of his crushing guilt for an old and awful crime.
On the run with a pair of unwanted associates from long ago, Jimmy and his children are pursued by a foe so ruthless and lethal that no one will stand between him and his prey. A showdown is inevitable- but does Jimmy still have what it takes to fight for his family's survival? And will his horror at his own transgressions consume him long before the predator on his trail? Garth Ennis (Preacher, Crossed, Battlefields) and John Higgins (Judge Dredd, Razorjack, War Story) present a hard-boiled tale of a man at bay- whose only hope of redemption lies on a dark and bloody path.
Garth Ennis has been writing comics for over twenty-five years. His credits include Preacher, Hitman, The Boys, Red Team, 303, Rover Red Charlie and the war series Battlefields and War Story.

Trying to escape your past isn't always easy Jimmy Kavanagh, a widower, is living quietly with his two children when two escaped convicts join him and all of them, including the children, go on the run to escape a psychopath called Stein. A lot of the plot is about why Jimmy is running and who from while he tries to protect his family in the macho way that he is used to. A lot of death and bloodshed ensue. Some sort of justice is the result. A morality tale, well-told and illustrated.
