It was just another quiet day at McKenna's Diner - until a couple of wanted killers walked in looking for trouble. Instead, they got bullets, and Tom McKenna got to be an instant media celebrity. That got him a lot of attention from some people he thought he'd escaped long ago. The kind of people who never forget a face - even after twenty years...
Now Tom must confront a group of cold-blooded mobsters intent on settling the score. As much as he tries to deny it, he's a man with a history of violence - and with the lives of his family hanging in the balance, he'll do anything to make sure his secret past stays buried... forever.
The film of the book, released in 2005, was directed by David Cronenberg and stars Viggo Mortensen, Maria Bello and Ed Harris.
