After college graduation, Heck Prigusivac heads home to New Pristina, Montana, to get a few things before driving to Seattle to teach Latin. His mother's alcoholism (she needs care Heck can't afford) and his gene pool get in the way: Heck's father was executed for murder, his brother Chick is on death row at the local penitentiary, and Heck's rare personality profile suggest he'd make an excellent executioner. He reluctantly takes the job as prison "closer." There, his life-long sibling rivalry continues, and he's attracted to Dori Dumchovic, Chick's high school girlfriend and the only woman on death row. Will Heck have to put his lover and his own brother to death? Written by

Did You Know?
Characters' last names have been taken from Serbian language - Prigusivac means 'silencer', Bauk is 'boogyman', and Cetnik is a nickname for Serbian military during WW2 or paramilitary units during Yugoslav wars of the 1990s. However, these are never really used as surnames in Serbia or anywhere else. See more

I know but this is such good news.
No it's not. I'm a unwed mother on death row. Give me the odds of that ever happening twice.
