Introduction

The streets of Chicago are running red with blood! Children are ruining their lives before they've barely begun. At the heart of the problem are the street gangs, mobsters and dope peddlers. The politicians keep promising but only make excuses. Citizens are in a veritable war zone caught between the police and various factions that are vying for the power to control the city.

As if this weren't enough, there are even darker forces that threaten to unleash their evil upon the city. For a select few their lives are more deeply intertwined in the power struggles that threaten to tear the city apart. One of them is a 17-year-old ghetto child who has seen his family and his life torn apart.

This is the story of Michael Thompson the Reaper and those who inhabit his city, Chicago.
