Former NYPD detective, Rusty was a rising rock star in the Organized Crimes Unit. Then, Mob members and corrupt cops lured Rusty to Grant’s Tomb and shot him in the head. The detective in Rusty died.
All that remains of Rusty is a brain-damaged, paranoid, criminal, psychopath terrorizing the streets of Newark, New Jersey. Now, years later, Alphonso “The Crepe hanger,” one of the hit men who lured Rusty to Grant’s Tomb, reveals the old China Doll case Rusty solved was an elaborate con. Soon the State of Connecticut will execute Steverino Downing, the man convicted for a crime he didn’t commit.
This news ignites something deep in Rusty’s exploded brain. He must find a way to free Downing. Rusty’s quest will take him from New York to the shipyards of South Africa and Shanghai. Can Rusty nail the pieces of his shattered mind back together? Can he beat the Mafia, corrupt cops, a Chinese Triad, and Somalia pirates in time to save Downing’s life, and still somehow redeem his own?
