Myles McReary is trying to save up enough money to bring his family over from Ireland. And he's doing it the only way he knows: through bareknuckle boxing. Myles is one of the toughest young fighters at the Bowery's Woodrat Club. Even so, when the Woodrat arranges a match between Myles and Giancarlo Sperio, the best boxer in Harlem, Myles worries he's met his match.

Myles knows he can't back down. If he does, he'll fail his family. So he turns to Father O'Carroll, a mysterious neighborhood priest. But Father O'Carroll's solution gives Will a whole new set of problems...
