"In 1930's New York, Bumpy Johnson rules the Harlem numbers racket with a rare combination of honor, dignity and strength. But when savage gangster, Dutch Schultz, threatens his reign with a series of bloody attacks, Bumpy knows that the only way to win is to play Dutch's deadly game. As a vicious war spins madly out of control, so does Bumpy's personal life, and soon the mobster realizes that his only way out is to instigate a dangerous plan one of the most feared and powerful gangsters in history -- mob chieftain Lucky Luciano"--Container.
