"Johnny Washington, a black teenager in Los Angeles, knows the freight yards like the back of his hand. He and his pals, Josh and Buddy, hit them often, stealing for a fence. They have to. They're the sole support of their families. But when Josh is killed by a security guard, they are forced to look for other work. They find it with the underworld kings in Elliot Davis."--Back cover.
