The stepfather who single-handedly raised him, Judge Teddy Krammerson, is brutally murdered, apparently by neo-Nazis out to avenge what they believe is the harsh sentencing of one of their own. But the murder may instead be connected to the reemergence of Quinn's beloved Joe "Steps" Sarducci, who supposedly died thirty years ago. Quinn wrestles with long-unanswered questions regarding his paternity as he seeks to track down the identities and motives of the judge's real killers -- before they can brutally strike out again at others near and dear to him."
