'I didn't want to go to America.  I didn't want to work for Darkey White.  I had my reasons.  But I went'.

So admits Michael Forsythe, an illegal immigrant escaping the Troubles in Belfast.  But young Michael is strong and fearless and clever - just the fellow to be trapped by Darkey, a crime boss, to join a gang of Irish thugs going head to head against the rising Dominican powers in Harlem and the Bronx.
