It’s a maximum-security Christmas: the turkey’s dry, the cards are depressing, and your gifts get confiscated by asshole guards. For Troy Khoury, it’s also his first Christmas without his twin brother, who was killed in the same police shootout that got Troy incarcerated. With his pretty-boy face and no one left to watch his back, Troy falls victim to a classic protection racket. If he doesn’t want to spend New Year’s eve at the mercy of the aptly-named “Pliers,” he’ll do the family’s dirty work and take out ex-enforcer Daniel Amato. He’s already got the knife; he just needs to get close enough to kill. Daniel’s bed should do the trick.
The closer he gets, though, the more Troy realizes he’s no murderer. When seducer is seduced, it’ll take nothing short of a miracle to free both men from the knots Troy’s tangled himself in. And even if they manage it, for a man serving a life sentence “free” is just another word.
