After pleading guilty to a series of homicides, Esau Till sits on death row, writing his life story. But his memoir is his one last chance to protect his brother. And, when it comes to his baby brother, Esau Till is a man without boundaries. When the genetic cards were dealt, Esau drew a genius IQ - and a crippled body. His brother Tory drew a 'slow' mind - and almost superhuman strength. Very early on, Esau learned that the only way to guarantee his brother's safety was to make himself indispensable, so he became the top hired killer for both rival local mobs. As the state gets ready to take his life, Esau plots going all-in on the last hand he will ever play.

"Crafty, strong-willed [main character] Esau combines courtly manners, deadly paybacks, and ruthless singularity of purpose in this chilling tour de force." - Publishers Weekly..".strikingly original...Vachss structures his novel as a sort of loose, episodic confessional that builds the story stone by stone...A smart, cynical glimpse into the human condition - and into lives no one should envy." - Kirkus Reviews"Born of a supremely abusive father and his own sister, Esau Till is trouble from day one - a hired killer who ends up on death row. This book unfolds as Esau's effort to tell his life story in a bid to protect Tory after his own death. Vachss writes raw, eye-opening works that deserve our attention." - Library Journal..".a highly compelling work of fiction by a master story teller at the top of his game...Grade: A-...[Narrator] Gigante is capable of some amazing vocal gymnastics...but it's his ability to capture the edges of the characters that makes his performance in here special...Gigante reads That's How I Roll like the author intended it to be read, and that, to me, is the most important thing a narrator can do." - The Guilded Earlobe
