In New York City's underground, five rival gangs have become six. A new enemy has joined the organization -- and Diego Mendez isn't having it.
To stop House Phoenix, he'll hit them at their hardest point: Jenner. The freak, the monster, the one man even the hardest criminals fear.
But Jenner won't go down easy. What begins as a plan to kidnap and kill the man soon spirals into a brutal battle of wills between captor and captive. One will triumph, and one must fall...
Yet no matter who wins, everyone pays the price.
