Nobody messes with the Wolves. Thy're one of Chicago's toughest gangs, and LeRoy had the bad luck to witness a murder they committed. Now the Wolves are convinced that LeRoy aquealed on them--and they won't be satisfied until they get revenge.
LeRoy's got no choice: he has to leave town. He escapes to New orleans to stay with a grandfather he's never met before. To his surprise, he likes this life there, but the police are pressuring him to testify at the murder trial. If he doesn't cooperate with them, LeRoy will be an outlaw himself. If he does testify, the next murder could be his own.
