New York City in the boomtown '80s, location - Hell's Kitchen. A novel of betrayal, retribution and passion.
The lucrative construction rackets are in the hands of the Irish mob, sparking the envy of the Mafia, the attention of the feds, and all-out war.

Two brothers are caught in the cross fire. Paddy Adare, a failed boxer turned enforcer for the Irish gangs, and Billy, a college graduate toiling in the tunnels as a sandhog before going to law school. As greed and hatred fuel the fight that is blazing in the streets, honor and loyalty will be put to the ultimate test.
