Why did he mow down a room full of mobsters? These are questions Frank is going to answer — and then decide whether Valery deserves his own punishment. But what will happen when these two criminal hunters come face-to-face? Seeds planted decades ago in Moscow and Afghanistan are about to bloom bloody in New York City in a new tale by the writer who gets Frank Castle like no other!
