My life changed in a matter of minutes. The choices I made led me to a life of crime and caused me to become the worst sort of criminal; I became a traitor to the country of New York.
For better or worse, the path my life has taken is irreversible. I’ve killed, I’ve died, and I’ve risked my life in an attempt to destroy a society built on over 100 years of lies and corruption.
My name is Jacob Ashton, and this is my story.
