Max Cordell had it all…a very lucrative career, two successful karate schools, and a beautiful wife and baby boy. Not bad for a kid who grew up in the ghetto! Max never forgot his roots. He spent his life helping others—especially those from his old neighborhood. Life was good until he was falsely accused of a heinous crime and thrown into prison. Max lost everything, but the one thing they couldn’t take was his soul. By the time Max was exonerated, he had lost all faith in humanity. Scarred for life, Max left the city he loved and became “The Drifter.”
