When a car bomb leaves Misha orphaned at nineteen, his life changes its trajectory. The possibilities of a privileged youth fade to a dismal choice between a brutal death or a violent life. He will never know peace and safety again.
Misha’s distant cousins, Louis and Vasily, are more accustomed to danger. They have the skills for it. But it is not long before they realize that it is Misha who has the judgment necessary to keep all three of them alive.
