How far would you go to save your family?
Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, the day the stock market crashed, and the day Evelyn Ford will never forget.
Her brother is in jail and owes a mob boss fifty grand. To save his life, Evelyn must seek employment anywhere she can get it—even if that means becoming a bootlegger and illegally running hooch for none other than Don Vincent Giovanni, the most powerful Kingpin in the city of New York. Thrown into the world of the mob, she finds herself drawn to Max Catalano, the only man she believes she can trust.
Unfortunately, Giovanni’s Consigliere has secrets of his own. Secrets that could get him and those he’s protecting killed. The last thing he needs is a beautiful, young woman messing with his well-laid plans—especially when her foolish choices get her entangled in the middle of the mafia crime wars.
Can he keep her safe? Or will both of their deceptions catch up with them in the end?
