On the Avenue, at one of the frontiers where New York City blends into suburbia, street gangs - the Orphans, the Pack - engage in deadly, intricately structured games of street combat. Boys and young men explode in spasms of grotesque, horrifying violence, redeemed, in their minds, by codes of honor, by chivalrous intentions, by courage and the purity of their struggle for power, dominance, territory. Meanwhile, others cynically manipulate these rivalries to advance their own fortunes in the drug trade.
