History Of Violence, A

Then an act of heroism puts him on all the news channels, and certain people take notice - Made men from Philly who are dead sure Stall is the ex-mob assassin they want to find and whack. Mistaken identity? OR is Tom actually a stone-cold killer?

You won't be able to look away.
