His uncle, Tom Sweeney, moves through a world of crime with impressive ease, his philosophy:
Life is short, grab what you can.
A role model for young Jack.
Untroubled by conscience, Jack's beginnings as schoolboy gang leader set him on the path to money and power. Finally he takes on the city's head villains.
But life is never as simple as Uncle Tom suggested. Detective Rick Hellyer and lovely Raven Bellingham bring complications.
