There's just no discipline anymore. You have to know there are consequences for bad behavior. Without that, society falls apart."Baton Guy croaked, "I can't breathe.""You just can't go around doing this sort of thing," I said. "It isn't right. Now, one of you is bleeding pretty badly and won't be riding a bike anytime soon. The other one still needs to learn, am I right?""Don't kill us," Knife Guy said.Mike Romeo, the former cage fighter living low in L.A., doesn't look for trouble. He doesn't have to.

Until a bullet nearly takes him out for good.Now all bets are off. Because if there's one thing Romeo wants, it's justice. And he's going to get it--his way.
