Scales of Justice

Nick lived a good life with a loving family and his wealth was a consequence, not a goal. When the cartel comes after him to use his new tracking technology to take out their competition, he refused. When they kill his wife his daughter, Paige, is all he has left. He buys an abandoned nuclear power plant and converts it into a prison to rehabilitate violent offenders and hires a few mercenaries to capture them. Every month Nick and a psychologist evaluate any inmates that could be released. When they threaten Paige Nick stages his death and destroys the program to keep her safe. When Nick learns the cartel threatens her to rebuild the program he and his mercenaries put together a team of violent criminals from his nuclear prison and head for Colombia to take down the cartel Kingpin. Nick locates Kingpin’s estate in heavy jungle with a fenced gator pond next to a building with a dock. One of Nick’s men is taken and Nick tries desperately to save him as they walk him down the dock, tie him to a rope behind a small boat and troll him in the pond until the gators get him. Angry Nick is spotted by Kingpin on surveillance near the pond so Kingpin orders they bring Paige to him in Colombia. Kingpins men ambush Nick and his team then lock them in the gator building. Nick escapes to the nearby town then returns with several armed women from town to free his team. After a firefight Nick captures Kingpin but Paige gets into a laptop that reveals a message, Kingpin recalled all his men to the estate. A live video surveillance shows dozens of cartel soldiers closing in outside. Nick tells his men to go get the bags of cartel cash they hid as he goes to a balcony and talks to the soldiers below. Nick has Kingpin brought out, hands tied, proclaiming ‘I am the boss now’ then tells his guys to dump the cash over the railing. The soldiers catch and gather cash as it flitters down and Kingpin yells at them to shoot Nick and his team. Shots are fired, Kingpin falls over the railing. The soldiers below throw Kingpin over the fence into the gator pond. Paige managed to access bank accounts showing millions so Nick gives everyone on the team a million and the rest finances the next mission.

I don't really have a bio. I live on the page in the storyworld I create with friends/enemies called characters. I have more fun with the protags but the antags are much more interesting even though they often get me wound up. If you want to find me close your eyes and walk toward the firefight. When you do, I hope you're one of the good guys. Go to bio
