From the original: Johnny Reagan quickly learned the slums depraved rules for survival. At six, he was a petty thief. At twelve, he was a procurer. At twenty-one, he was a respectable, lovable, 18-carat heel who never missed a trick-especially if she promised an evenings cheap thrills. Then rich Mr. Connors befriended Johnny, and Johnny knew there was big money to be made-if he pulled the right strings, told the right lies, and played around with the right women. But Johnny played with Julie . . . Julie who had been brought up in the same slum that had spawned Johnny-and who knew all the cute gutter tricks Johnny thought were his exclusive property . . . plus a few female tricks all her own. A tough and lusty novel that moves with the white-heat of a lightning bolt!
