Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Waiting on death row after confessing to several homicides, a master assassin writes his life story to protect his younger brother, a process during which he remembers their murderously violent father. After pleading guilty to a series of homicides, Esau Till sits on death row, writing his life story. But his memoir is his one last chance to protect his brother. When the genetic cards were dealt, Esau drew a genius IQ, and a crippled body. His brother Tory drew a slow mind, and almost superhuman strength. Very early on, Esau learned that the only way to guarantee his brother's safety was to make himself indispensable, so he became the top hired killer for both rival local mobs. As the state gets ready to take his life, Esau plots going all-in on the last hand he will ever play.
