Murder, betrayal, greed, and conspiracy are the grievous ingredients in this story about twelve year-old Jake Tanner’s witness to the brutal murder of his mother and father by five seemingly desperate men. Now, eight years later and grown to manhood, Jake’s promise to his dead father to find and kill the five men is hampered only by his younger sister, Emily, who also witnessed the murders and has been hopelessly traumatized. Through a chance encounter with a beautiful young woman, Jake is finally free to begin his long awaited search to find the five men and the motive behind the murders. With the help of a federal marshal, and using his own ingenuity, Jake’s search for retribution does not ignore even the slightest hint of each killer’s whereabouts. The resulting capture of each killer is a unique, dangerous, and compelling story in and of its self that slowly reveals the astounding motive for the murders. A motive that is far more sinister than anyone could possibly conceive. A murder so far reaching, and of such epic proportion, that it stains with blood the hallways of our nation’s capital.
