Sonny Lofthus is a strangely charismatic and complacent young man. Sonnyâs been in prison for a dozen years, nearly half his life. The inmates who seek out his uncanny abilities to soothe leave his cell feeling absolved. They donât know or care that Sonny has a serious heroin habitâor where or how he gets his uninterrupted supply of the drug. Or that heâs serving time for other peoplesâ crimes.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Sonny took the first steps toward addiction when his father took his own life rather than face exposure as a corrupt cop. Now Sonny is the seemingly malleable center of a whole infrastructure of corruption: prison staff, police, lawyers, a desperate priestâall of them focused on keeping him high and in jail. And all of them under the thumb of the Twin, Osloâs crime overlord. As long as Sonny gets his dope, heâs happy to play the criminal and the prisonâs in-house savior.
But when he learns a stunning, long-hidden secret concerning his father, he makes a brilliantly executed escape from prisonâand from the person heâd let himself becomeâand begins hunting down those responsible for the crimes against him . . . The darkly looming question is: Who will get to him firstâthe criminals or the cops?
