Max Strong #5

Every road out takes him right back in

His past still haunts him, but Max keeps hoping a more peaceful future. He’s moved on again, this time to Philadelphia where he has a job driving nights for a car service. He lives alone, on the fringes, preferring to lay low.

But a late-night pickup, a mysterious box and a woman in a bloody wedding dress conspire to draw him into a dangerous vendetta with a story longer than his own rap sheet. Soon Max finds himself under siege on all sides by cops looking for answers and rival gangs looking for blood. As secrets and agendas collide, the body count rises, and Max is once again forced from the shadows.

Sometimes the only way out is to burn it all down.
