Alfred A. Knopf,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
As the wild building boom of the 1980s galvanizes the construction rackets, both the Mafia and the feds stake out territory in New York City's eternally explosive Hell's Kitchen, longtime turf of the Irish mob. At the center of the story: two Irish brothers, Paddy and Billy Adare.  One is an enforcer for the mob.  The other, about to enter law school, works as a sandhog in the tunnels below Manhattan.  Important to each other since childhood, they are caught in a crossfire of greed and savage violence that puts their loyalties -- to family, neighborhood, and each other -- to a brutal test.
