Thirty-year-old Tom Farrell was raised in the working-class Irish neighborhoods of the Bronx. A graduate of the school of hard knocks, Farrell has channeled his street-smart intelligence into selling guns on the black market. Just out of jail, he gets a job across the street from a ritzy Midtown hotel - which inspires him to execute the perfect heist. But when one of his gang of thugs tries to take more than his share of the loot, and ends up in the Harlem River, the trouble begins - the deceased was a favorite operative of the Bronx chapter of the IRA. Then, trying to fence the goods, Farrell draws the ire of the Albanian mob by disrespecting its godfather. Shots break out as Farrell's gang is toasting its success, and soon he is lost in the underworld of New York City after midnight, not sure who has been killed, who has survived, and who will claim the money.
Tom Farrell is hungry and haunted, pursued not only by terrorists and murderers but by his past and his vices - the impact of an unbearably hard upbringing and even harder luck.
