His brother dead, mother gone after a lifetime of drug abuse, identity lost after witnessing the brutal murder of his friend, and still his story is untold. aVengeance is mine, a says the Lord. Perhaps Jerald Risen, Sean Elliott, Tim Shepherd and Wayne Black failed to read that part of the Bible. Four friends who would have been happy with just a good bottle of cognac, half a dozen women, plenty of beer, and a little change in their pockets, thatas all they wanted. But it would have been a lie and Tim knew it. His partner and friend, Lionel Knight, dead at the hands of a madman, and his identity was lost. To get it all back, to somehow be vindicated, would cost him more. Tim Shepherd never would have willingly sacrificed so much, but revenge seemed the perfect motive. Some odd number of billions of dollars in the world and some people think they should have it all.
