Synopsis: "Both a suspenseful crime story and the saga of a troubled Irish- American family... Superb." (Associated Press)

Kevin Curran was ready to give up on his younger brother, Danny, who is lost to heroin addiction and hard, desperate living on the streets of New York. So when Danny shows up on Kevin's Staten Island doorstep, looking clean, fit, and prosperous, Kevin can't help but be overjoyed.

But when Danny offers Kevin a role in an underworld plot revolving around the abandoned Bloodroot Children's Hospital, not even Kevin's worst nightmares could have prepared him for what he'll discover or the horrific revelations that will pit them against a world of murder, mob hitmen-and each other.
