Johnny Washington, a black teenager in Los Angeles, knows the freight yards like the back of his hand. He and his pals, Josh and Buddy, hit them often, stealing for a fence. They have to. They're the sole support of their families. But when Josh is killed by a security guard (who gets his brains scattered by Buddy with nunchaku sticks), they are forced to look for other work. They find it with the underworld kings in Elliot Davis. But when Davis recruits Johnny's sister for his stable and later OD's her, Johnny and Buddy come on with a vengeance.Goines, Donald is the author of 'Inner City Hoodlum' with ISBN 9780870679995 and ISBN 0870679996.
