Bob Saetta is about as scary a person as you could ever meet.

Of course even crooks like Bob have their limits.

After discovering a horrible secret about his brother, Paul — the head of the Saetta crime family — Bob is ready to give everything he knows up to the police. Just one condition: His wife and son have to be brought into protective custody with him. When Paul finds them first, Bob makes a backroom deal with the N.Y.P.D. and the F.B.I.: He’s got two days to go back to Brooklyn and find his family before a world of law enforcement comes looking for him.

The result is five incredibly violent and gory issues of action and mayhem, twinged with black humour as only writers Garth Ennis (Preacher, Punisher) and native Brooklynian Jimmy Palmiotti (Jonah Hex) — well aided by the gritty art of Mihailo Vukelic — can deliver.
