And he isn't like the bullies, the ones who taunt and beat him on a daily basis. Herman isn't like any of his peers, or indeed anyone he knows. The person Herman identifies with the most, the person he idolizes and yearns to be, is The Butcher, a brutal and prolific serial killer. Following yet another beating by the kids he despises at a school he hates, Herman returns home to his inconspicuous existence with his solitary, silent, and coldhearted father. But life for Herman is about to change. The shackles that have held him to mediocrity and anonymity are about to be broken.

Life had been cruel to his father and death had been cruel to his legend, but Herman decides that he will cary on his father's work. He may not have his father's experience, but with a little practice, Herman knows he can become the man in the shadows, the thing that everyone fears. Now, if only Homicide Detective Lester Keats would leave him be...
