Ten years ago, they took him. He doesn't know who. For ten years he has been confined in a private prison. He doesn't know why.

He changed...transformed himself into something else...something hard...something lethal.

Suddenly, one day his incarceration ends, again without explanation. He is sedated, stuffed inside a trunk, and dumped in a park. When he awakes, he is free to reclaim what's left of his life...and what's left is revenge.
