During the coldest winter on record, in one of the country’s most corrupt cities, seven men will die. Every sin has a price and Sam Winters is coming to collect. No longer the man he was, no longer a husband, no longer a father. Sam has fallen over the edge of sanity and into a dark, twisted reality where he truly believes he is Death incarnate on a mission to claim the blood debt from the evil that is destroying the world. As Sam Winters claims his vengeful retribution from the vile criminals who destroyed everything that mattered, Sam’s sociopathic tendencies are revealed through a retrospective look into an abusive childhood, a violent adolescence, and a nurturing love affair that ends in a climactic tragedy. The city has a new law and those who choose a life of sin will be brutally punished. Every sin has a price.
