From the Back Cover
"For all of us, being dead would be better than living with him. When Charlie said 'no man is a man until his father dies,' I knew what I had to do." It's Father's Day weekend, and it looks like some of the well-intentioned wisdom that Charlie D dispenses on his late-night radio call-in show might blow up in his face. One young listener seems intent on killing his father and the rest of his family. Unfortunately, no one knows where he is. Time is running out, until Charlie's own long-estranged father enters the picture.
