BURY THE HATCHET
Jay Corso stood on an empty stretch of road outside the gates of Rahway prison, the sun on his face like air on a fresh wound. The air smelled different, charged somehow. Twenty five years he’d spent locked inside, while the men who’d put him there lived free from fear.
Men who needed killing.
After serving 25 years for the murder of a vicious bully in a quiet northern suburb, Louisiana boy Jay Corso maxes out of prison looking for answers, his family, and revenge. He shakes things up with school chums and his newfound criminal cohorts, and his two bare-knuckled fists unravel a twisted tale of small town secrets and good old Jersey corruption. Jay wants payback, and it’s time to bury the hatchet.
