Summary Edit

Turning twenty-seven may be terrifying for some, but for Alex, a struggling artist living in the Midwest, it is cataclysmic. Inheriting a huge expanse of land should make him a rich and happy man; but something about this birthday, his name, and the beautiful woman whose life he just saved, has suddenly made him - and everyone he loves - into a target for extreme and uncompromising violence.

To Jeri, the love of my life, who is always there for me. She gives me strength when I'm weak and her special smile when I'm strong.
