Jackie Cogan is an enforcer, and when the mob's rules get broken, Cogan is called in to take care of business. This time a high-stakes card game has been held up by an unknown gang of thugs. Calculating, ruthless, businesslike, and with a shrewd sense of other people's weaknesses, Cogan plies his trade, moving among a variety of hoods, hangers-on, and big-timers, tracking those responsible, and returning "law and order" to the lawless Boston underworld.

Summary

Jun 25, 2012

When a Boston mob-protected poker game gets hijacked and robbed by two masked hoodlums, trust-worthy enforcer Jackie Cogan is hired to investigate, and find those responsible. Under the eye of a mysterious driver, Cogan uses his connections to narrow down suspects. One of them includes Mark "Markie" Trattman, a wise guy who once robbed his own poker game.
Meanwhile, Frankie and Russell, the two guys who robbed the poker game, are trying to keep a low profile when they realize the possibility of being hunted down. However, their boss, Johnny "Squirrel" Amato, who planned the robbery, seems to be over-confident enough about the situation.
