Summary
Washed-up prizefighter-turned-goon Terry Malloy now works for the Mob on the Jersey Shore. After Terry inadvertently sets up the death of a longshoreman set to testify against his corrupt boss, his beliefs are challenged when he meets the dead man's sister, Evie. Torn between loyalty to his brother, a Mob lawyer, and the angelic, innocent Edie, Terry must confront a moral dilemma that presents only dire consequences as his options
