This was the story of two young men who grew up together on the wrong side of the law. One of them struggled to make it to "the other side" and the other tried to drag his old friend back to the wrong side again. This was a story of love and hate, good and evil, told in the back drop of a huge city, the story of two men among millions. Good book. Suspenseful to the end. Sakey is a great fiction writer.
