"As adults, Dante O'Donnell followed his dead father into the police force; Jimmy Burns, closer than a blood brother, went along. JoJo Paradiso's future was foreordained: He would be, first, an underboss in his father's crime family, eventually stepping into Salvator Paradiso's shoes. So Jojo is now a criminal who walks the Queens streets freely and doesn't worry about the law." "When Detectives O'Donnell and Burns are assigned to get the goods on Jojo Paradiso, it can't be a simple matter of cop against crook. In their world, there is no black and white - only gray. There are tearing conflicts, greed, a choice among betrayals. And there are secrets that, once out, could rip apart the friendship that since boyhood has been vital to the existence of both Dante and Jimmy."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
