In this second installment of the Pigeon-Blood Red trilogy -- Pigeon-Blood Red was the first -- two men from different sides of the tracks, well-respected black lawyer Paul Elliott and deadly enforcer Richard (Rico) Sanders, are reunited when a teenage girl witnesses a carjacking gone bad and as a result is marked for death by a crime boss with no apparent motive. The girl turns out to be both Paul's neighbor and someone he looks upon as a little sister. He and Rico, who already have an unlikely history together, forge an uneasy alliance to protect the girl from a ruthless hit man who has an agenda of his own stemming from a long-simmering feud with Rico. The hit man sees the job not only as an opportunity to eliminate the witness, but also as a chance to settle an old score with Rico. And for good measure, he plots to take Paul out as part of the bargain.
