Jewish gangster' isn't a term one hears much nowadays, but back when the Dodgers played in the East and licorice cost a penny a bag, Brooklyn corners were lousy with semitic young toughs looking for adventure and excitement - none more so than in Brownsville. This volume follows the intertwined lives of Allie Tannenbaum and Abe Rele as they escape the mean streets and lonlely tenements of the East New York, make themselves into the most dangerous men in America, only to eventually send their best friends and closest allies up the river.
