Description

Danny and Evan were born on the mean streets of Chicago and did a little bit of bad-boy stuff knocking over liquor stores. It was strictly small-time. Then Evan made a mistake and he ended up in jail.

Danny went straight after that. He got himself a girl and got a job with prospects. Time passed. Then Evan got out. And Evan's not someone to let bygones be bygones. He thinks Danny owes him. And, unfortunately, Evan knows a secret or two that will tear Danny's new life apart . . .
