"Nightkill" is a taut medical thriller of crooked politicians, an assassin with a tarnished heart of gold, and the mob that is out to get him...and a single-minded medical researcher who would use them all for his own profit. Jake Nacht is a man who knows how to take risks and believes in justice, even if it is of the skewed sort. He's one of the best at what he does - and what he does is kill people for a living. But it's a young man's game and he wants out. He goes on one last hit, is double-crossed, and is left completely paralyzed. The mob thinks Nacht's a done deal. What they don't know is that a brilliant doctor has developed a dangerous and deadly new therapy. If he succeeds, Jake Nacht will not only walk again but just might have a shot at revenge.
