Hoping to secure a future for his three children, an aging Alaskan crime boss looks to retire and divide his empire among his heirs. But when his idealistic son refuses the inheritance, the old man disowns him. This proves to be a fatal mistake, as his cold-blooded daughters use their new-found power and influence against him. An epic tale of betrayal and loss, this engrossing graphic novel is a mix of King Lear and The Godfather in the dramatic setting of Alaska.
