Born in rural Iowa to a submissive and ineffectual mother, John Stevenovitz never knew his biological father, and this is something his abusive step-father would never let him forget. Perhaps driven by suffering at home, the boy matures quickly, both physically and mentally, ultimately transforming himself into the old man’s superior in every way. With equal measures of cleverness and cruelty, the long-suffering youth eventually engineers his step-father’s suicide, losing his mother in the same brutal event. By this time in his young life, Johnny has mastered the football field, having amassed playing statistics impressive enough to leave the community scrambling to keep him local throughout the remainder of high school. Afterward, he changes his name, coasts through college on a full scholarship, and is drafted straight into the pros for a glorious career. When the glory fades and his wife’s affection yields to younger, more popular players, Johnny Bullet takes justice into his own hands and the consequences are tragic.
