Synopsis

Bleeding and dizzy, Blade wakes up to find himself in the hospital. But how did he get there? With enemies coming at him from all sides, it?s hard to know who attacked him. But he knows that whoever it was will be back to finish him off. And quick. So he?s gotta go. He?s gotta break outta there. Not only to save his own life, but there?s kindly old Mary and little Jaz to think about. Who?s looking out for them? On the run, with grinks hot on his tail and gravely injured, Blade will have to gather all his strength just to survive. And with nowhere to hide, he needs to run. Because this time, if he plays dead, that?s exactly how he?ll end up.

This captivating and suspenseful series never lets up. If A Clockwork Orange were to meet The Outsiders, Blade would be the result.
