Kings of America Summary

Kings of America by R.J. Ellory

Danny McCabe is on the run. He committed a terrible crime. And he'd do it again.

A promising boxer back in his native Ireland, he had to start over with a new life and a new home, halfway across the world in up-and-coming New York City.

A chance encounter tangles his life up with fellow immigrants Nicky and Lucia Mariani. The siblings came to the land of opportunity with high hopes and little else. As Danny scrapes by, Lucia dreams of Hollywood stardom, while Nicky's reckless ambition measures success only in money and power.

They are the only family Danny has. He would do anything for them. But every family has its secrets -- even from each other . . .

This is a sweeping story set over three decades, from Europe to America, from the slums and tenements of New York to the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood Hills, from the dark heart of the American Dream to an impossible choice . . .
