Description
The Apostles run Chicago's streets. Their leader, "Solemn Shawn" Terson, is the most revered--and feared--man in town. Because of his past exploits, the Apostles have a loyalty among its members that has reached mythic proportions. When Insane Wayne, a former member of the rival gang, the Governors, comes groveling for admission to the coveted Apostles, he's quickly turned down. His reaction is violent: He shoots a Governor and plants evidence that lays the murder rap on the Apostles, setting off a bloody series of retaliations. Solemn Shawn is ready to give up the gang world. His pregnant girlfriend wants another way of life and the cops are hot on his tail; he knows the time has come to step aside. But he must fight one more street war before handing over the reins of his empire. The head of the Governors has a score to settle with Shawn that dates back to their prison days--and Shawn and the Apostles must fight or flee as the streets around them erupt in violence. . . .
