There a young man living in the infamous Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. He is an orphaned college student trying to get through his sophomore year at age twenty-three, years behind the traditional undergraduates. His two best friends, Will and Chief, are an ex-drug dealer and a computer hacker. And his boss, Tony Star, is the most dangerous man in Brooklyn, an arch-criminal with enterprises legal and illegal across New York City and beyond.

Our young man's job is to pick up the weekly take from Star's establishments and deliver it to him at the end of a night. It's one day's work a week for the kind of pay the fortunate get in a year. The money covers his tuition and the small apartment he rents in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Life is simple. And simple means good.

Then everything falls out of balance. Someone decides to rob him for the week's take, and leave him for dead. His boss, being generous, gives him until the end of the night to recover what's been stolen. But as the night moves forward and people start dying, this young man begins to learn the hard way that his chosen way of life is nothing but an illusion.
