Tormented as a child, a boy reaches adulthood with a damaged soul and a seething rage... This provocative tale of human evil is not for the faint of heart.
My name is Tony. When I was seven years old the bullies in my class almost killed me; my father was angry that I let it happen, but he always hated me.
At thirteen I went to prison for a crime I didn't commit; it was the worst experience of my life.
Living on the streets was hard; being part of a gang was even harder.
Oh, and I did find people to love along the way...and, I would do anything to protect them, anything.
