Jesse V. Johnson
When a protective father meets a murderous ex-con, both need to deviate from the path they are on as they soon find themselves entangled in a downwards spiral of lies and violence while having to confront their own inner psyche.
... that it takes too long to tell it, and it's confusing!
This is a slow moving story that concentrates maybe a bit too much on the human compassion side between Alicia and Darrell and not the criminal activities Alicia's boyfriend is involved into. (And Alicia has no idea her boyfriend is up to no good).
We learn Alicia is studying law and Darrell has jail time and mafia connections in his past. Her boyfriend Tom does not approve of her involvement with Darrell who is in the last stages of cancer and claims to be friendless.
All this comes to a head when a psychotic mafia boss takes over the drug ring and doesn't like Darrell talking to Alicia and somehow Tom is all mixed up with this mob ring.
Something I missed or it's just not clear; but the whole story is a rather convoluted mess involving innocence, corruption, and deceit.
