Summary Wilson DeLeon, Jr. is an exceptional college student with an adoring girlfriend, doting mother and a future full of promise. He has never wanted for anything. He has never been forced to stand his ground. But when ghosts from his mother's past come back to haunt his present, he must defend his family. He must quickly turn into the strong man his father prayed he'd become. Forced to flee her home after gangsters killed her husband, Millie made an oath to give her children only the best. But all that changes when an enemy from the past catches up with them. It's finally time to take action. Weapons at the ready, Wilson and Millie prepare for a final showdown with the murderer who robbed him of a father and her of a husband. Now, in a battle fueled by family ties and blood feuds, it will become very clear what happens when anyone tries to come between this son and his mother.
