Grant and Litz are two Federal prisoners serving long sentences in a Florida penitentiary when suddenly they find themselves freed—a fiery political movement is dissolving the Federal government and soon all 52 States will become independent nations. According to strict guidelines, some Federal prisoners are being released early but they’re branded with the popular slur “Marielitos.”
Grant and Litz, now Marielitos, head for their homes in the Northeast, hoping to rebuild the lives that they ruined years before. For Grant, that life revolves around Darling—his wife and the mother of their children. Darling, who banished Grant from her circle the moment he was arrested. He pleaded guilty, so there was no doubt in her mind that he was.
While Grant desperately wants to return to Darling and make up for lost time with his family, Darling’s vicious brothers work to prevent that reunion. Having kept tabs on Grant for years, the brothers hire a mercenary to track and kill the ex-cons—and just in case this hired gun should fail, the brothers head south themselves, armed and eager.
The America that Grant and Litz travel through is changing and paranoid, dark and fragmented. Everything they see, everything they must do to make it farther and farther north hints at a grim homecoming for both.
