Dominic blames his brother, Spencer, for bringing ruin to their childhood home. He saw his baby brother as a malign force that provoked their parents to conflict and bitterness. Only once in their childhood did the brothers nearly reconcile, and that was when Spencer defended Dominic from the school bully, Lar Mangan. As the brothers grow to adulthood, Dominic’s path again converges with Lar Mangan when he joins a new company and discovers that Mangan - by now an ex-convict – is working and prospering there under a false identity. Dominic has become the possessor of a deadly secret, and as the brothers stoke up their feud, they are wary only of each other and have no sense of Mangan’s sinister schemes. They face a choice - to allow a lethal trap to close or to choose their bond over their feud - salvation over blame – and come together to defeat Lar Mangan. View on Amazon.com View on Amazon.co.uk
