San Fernando is a small island port in the tyrannical grip of the giant gangster wolf, Smiley O’Hannigan. Here, barely surviving and on the edge of starvation, there seems to be no future for young Johnny and his mother. But when Johnny finds a key to the back door of Smiley’s fortress and treasure vault, he has a chance to change everything. Johnny’s always dreamed of being a hero like his father, but he’s about to learn that heroism isn’t quite as easy–or as simple–as he thought.
