Ever since his mother was killed in a gratuitous act of violence, Jack has been impelled to fix the injustices around him - an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. He is strong, fit, ingenious, respected by his friends and clients and totally anonymous. But when his girlfriend Gia discovers his repair business is not for electrical appliances, she becomes frightened of him and sees him as a thug. Another injustice - and another reason for Jack to withdraw from the world. But a pressing request from an inscrutable Indian for Jack to recover an iron necklace stolen from his grandmother draws Jack into the most challenging and frightening battle of his life. For the Westphalen curse ties Gia and her young daughter Vicki to a deadly vow of vengeance taken over a century before...
