"Sonny Lofthus's world collapsed the day he found his father, a policeman, dead. Suicide. He is not yet thirty years old and is in prison for twelve years for two homicides. Yet something in him inspires confidence, because in Staten's prison, his comrades consider him a confessor and tell him stories. His existence is only in the prison. Untill a detainee reveals to him that his father was actually killed. At that moment Sonny rediscovers a reason for living and regaining freedom: punishing the guilty ones one at a time." -- rough translation of the cover.
"Il mondo di Sonny Lofthus è crollato il giorno in cui ha trovato il padre, un poliziotto, morto suicida. Ora non ha ancora trent'anni ed è in prigione da dodici per duplice omicidio. Eppure qualcosa in lui ispira fiducia, perché nel carcere di massima sicurezza di Staten i compagni lo considerano un confessore e gli raccontano le loro storie. La sua esistenza è ormai tutta lì. Finché un detenuto gli rivela che in realtà suo padre è stato ucciso. In quell'istante Sonny riscopre una ragione per vivere e riacquistare la libertà: punire i colpevoli, uno alla volta." -- cover.
