Book Overview:

The Jersey Death Squad: A Journey to Kill Jessie Freeman is a story about four friends who grew up together in rural northern New Jersey. The four are close enough to be brothers—a chosen family—whose loyalty and love for one another become a powerful force in their lives. When the boys witness a tragic accident involving a local police officer, they are profoundly affected, especially upon learning the full extent of the injury.

As the boys observe the impact of the tragedy on the officer’s family, they create a pact: if any one of them should ever become a mental or physical burden to their friends or family, the remaining friends need to end their lives. Decades later, as grown men, they are devastated to learn that due to a horrible accident, one of them meets the condition described in the pact. The remaining friends reconnect and set off on a journey to get to their soul brother and fulfill their fateful obligation.

This compelling and frequently funny story explores reconnection, friendship, and love, and asks the question: can the boys fulfill the pact and murder their friend after all these years, with so much to lose?
