A time comes into his life when he thinks that he is about to lose his life and realizes that the myths are not true. Henry does not believe in the existence of a white ray of light at a tunnel’s end. He thinks that his life is not flashing in front of his eyes. The only thing that he could think of at this desperate moment is how much he wanted to live and cherish his life. It has only been a month since he moved to the NYC and continues to aspire to transform himself as the best journalist that the world has ever seen. He tries to get his hands on the stories that are great in every sense and have never been told or heard. However, the 24 year old Henry Parker ends up reaching a point in his miserable life where he becomes weary beyond the rational thoughts and seems just pulling a trigger away from ending his life. He doesn’t want to run anymore as he and Amanda have been doing nothing but running for the last 72 hours. Both of them have become very much tired and don’t appear to have the strength to take one more step ahead. Henry Parker, in particular, is tired and sick of having the knowledge of the truth and not being in a situation to speak it out. Some time ago, he had everything figured out and was all set to reveal the story and the truth to the world. But now, he finds himself running from two men, an FBI agent and an assassin, both of whom want him dead at any cost. However, the reasons for each of them doing so are different. Henry Parker knows that he cannot afford to get killed by any of these men because he if dies now, many more people will lose their lives tomorrow.

At the beginning of the story of this book, it is depicted that Henry Parker lies in bed along with his girlfriend Amanda. He ignores a late night call from his former girlfriend. Just then, he comes to know that a few gun shots have been fired outside a popular nightclub in the city in the night and a beautiful starlet has been killed. Henry thinks of working on this story to rise to new heights in his journalism career. He knows that he was born for chasing such a story and the time has come when he can reap the benefits of his years of struggle. As he starts investigating the matter, he gets surprised and shocked to find out that the story has links to hundred year old case. After a short while, he learns about the killing of another innocent person. This time, the shot was fired from one of the most sophisticated guns ever manufactured. Now, both these killings went on to make a lot of news because of two reasons. One reason is that both the victims were quite controversial in their lives, and the second reason being the way they were executed out in the public. Henry Parker’s search takes him into the dangerous and twisted world of ‘The Boy’. This world seems to be filled with long buried, shocking secrets and a demented honor code of the most infamous outlaw of the world. Soon, the assassin realizes that Henry Parker is getting very close to unraveling the truth about him. As a result, he begins to panic with the fear that his past might get revealed if he did not stop Henry before time runs out. He issues a warning to Henry to stop indulging in this matter any further or else he will end up jeopardizing all that he cares about very much. The assassin’s world appears to comprise of a pretty fine line between the evil and good, and the deciding factor as to who is guilty and who is innocent lies in the fact that who is holding the gun.
