During the first half of the twentieth century, the Hell's Kitchen area of new York City was home to struggling immigrants , many who turned to crime. The book is a history of the struggle to survive based on the lives of several individuals on both sides of the law. Four of its residents landed in New York infamous's infamous Sing Sing prison where they would engineer an escape attempt that would cost four lives and ruin the reputation of the warden. A well researched history.
