The Trouble Boys is a gripping historical crime novel about the Irish mob in 1920s-1950s New York City.
The story opens with young Irish immigrant Colin O'Brien settling with his family in New York City. Colin soon befriends a Cuban-American boy named Johnny Garcia, but his American dream is shattered when a tragic event shockingly alters his life.
As Johnny and Colin grow into men, their friendship changes. They begin working for different crime syndicates, with Colin joining the ranks of charismatic Tom McPhalen's Irish mob, and Johnny becoming a member of debonair Tito Bernal's Cuban gang.
As Colin's rise through the ranks of organized crime becomes increasingly more brutal and demeaning and his friendship with Johnny deteriorates, he begins to question his place in the seductive yet violent world of gangland New York....
