Survival isn’t instinct…dying is.” – Alexander Marks
In this heart-wrenching tale of drugs, violence, and betrayal, Alexander Marks is a shattered man who desires nothing more than to be forgotten. His closet is painted with the blood of those he’s harmed (and protected).
Just released from federal prison after almost a decade, Alexander returns home to Ocean Park, Massachusetts, finding nothing of the vibrant city he once knew. Little does he know how significant his prior choices were, setting in motion a deadly series of events which forever changed his city, his friends, and (unbeknownst to Alex) himself.
As two vastly different victims of his past resurface upon hearing of his return, Alex’s true battle between sanity and lunacy commences as he must choose between what feels right…and what feels natural.
