A devastating injustice rages across America. Not the injustice we see captured on cell phones and body cams, but to army vet Jack Cade, no less destructive. It’s the theft of private property for private gain, or as the lawyers call it, eminent domain. By any name, it spells one fate for its victims: the loss of their homes and dreams.
Cade is back from Iraq with a bad conduct discharge, an addiction to painkillers, and a case of survivor’s guilt—the aftermath of an IED attack that killed seven Iraqi soldiers in his squad. When the eviction epidemic arrives at his doorstep, Cade’s drawn into a fight to protect the apartment complex where he lives, which is also home to thousands of Salvadoran tenants. But he won’t fight unopposed: a real estate developer and a vicious gang leader are determined to crush Cade and his neighbors, no matter the cost.
