Aslan Jade Callenreese, better known by his alias Ash Lynx, is a former mafia sex slave turned street gang leader in New York City. He’s on a mission to get his revenge on mob boss Golzine, who forced him into this life in the first place and destroyed his brother’s sanity with a mysterious someone or something known only as Banana Fish.
Along the way, he meets Eiji Okumura, a Japanese rookie journalist who falls into his life and provides a warm kindness that Ash isn’t used to. Ash tries to protect his newfound friend while getting his hands dirty fighting Golzine and other threats. It’s a tragic and violent story, but one with a lot of heart—just like the main character himself.
