Dan Powers grew up the hard way. At age ten, he became the youngest prisoner ever incarcerated at the Illinois State Reformatory for Boys. His crime: arson. Most juvenile arsonists would have had psychiatric evaluation, but Dan's parents were too poor to pay for a shrink, so the judge sent him to reform school. Once you're in "The System" the road ahead is rough.
Dan learned to fight in order to survive-criminal behavior that had never occurred to him before. He also learned that he was smarter than the average kid in the joint-graduating from grade school at eleven and high school at fifteen. Definitely not your average juvenile delinquent, but despite his "smarts" he graduated to an even more vicious maximum security reform school, followed by stints in Joliet State Prison, a couple of work farms, and finally San Quentin Prison for crimes ranging from petty theft, burglary, bank robbery, to manslaughter.
Suddenly, his criminal behavior stopped. He married a wonderful woman, became a computer engineer, then retired. That's when trouble came knocking. After 30 years as a model citizen, Dan was arrested for a crime he didn't commit. Four years of legal wrangling and half of his life savings later, the judge ruled that no crime had been committed. "Case dismissed." The stress of the ordeal was too much for his wife. After she died, Dan vowed to get his money back, plus a lot more to finance revenge on the cops, the prosecutors, and others who'd tried to ruin his life.
Dan Powers takes no prisoners. He's intelligent, cunning and vicious. He fears nothing, no one. He's out for revenge and that's exactly what he'll get.
