Looking to catch a break and make a buck, a man from a family of small-time traders takes a job on a cargo ship. But his hopes quickly fade when he discovers just what is in the ship's holds. And he's not the only one revolted by the ship's cargo. The Butcher disapproves too, and he's about to make his feelings known, the only way he knows how—with fatal force. Meting out justice to the ship's crew is a start, but he won't stop until he's tracked down the ringleaders behind the band of traffickers. The story of a man who has lost his faith in the world, and who will do everything in his power to restore it.
