Summary, etc.:
"When Max Monetti first gets out of prison, life seems good. The bank founded by his father and now run by his brothers is thriving. The society woman he loves has waited seven long years for him. But for Max, every day of those seven years was filled with hatred. And when he learns that his father died because he was squeezed out of the bank by the brothers after Max took a rap for him, that hatred bubbles to the surface, obliterating everything, even the love of his woman."--Booklet.
