John Fleming grew up in the 1940's and '50's in Hell's Kitchen, a New York City slum, now gentrified. He wanted to show how it was at that time, since no writer he was aware of had told this story with the voice of one who had lived the experience. In this candid and often humorous memoir, Fleming shows it all. The dark side includes dirt, roaches, alcoholism, promiscuity, fighting, bullying, the embarrassment of living on welfare. But sprinkled throughout are moments of enjoyment-- frolicking in the water from a fire hydrant, playing chess on the roof with a buddy, diving off the Queen Mary's deck, discovering the enchantment of reading. John emerges at the age of 20 from the cocoon that is Hell's Kitchen as a strong adult, inured to hardship, alert to hypocrisy, ready to move to the next phase of his life. The story builds in a series of vignettes with powerful imagery and authentic dialogue. The characters speak in their own voices, and the narrator alternates between the voice of his young self as a participant and the voice of his adult self looking back. Hell's Kitchen comes alive in this unadorned portrayal of the life of its residents.

Moving to Arizona changed my life in several significant ways. I had a chance to go to college, something I had never even thought of. Then I met Marge and got married, so I was no longer a loner. My story became our story. Together we experienced parenthood, and then dived into the real estate profession. Later we ventured into Mexico and Mexican business--you'll hear about that too. As I was thinking about how to organize the experiences of our life together, I realized that many of them involved writing. It was a hugely significant part of my life, but since we did most of it together, we decided to tell the story of my life in Arizona--which became our life--as a team.

The Hounds From Hell is a squad of misfits, led by Sergeant James "Black Jack" Larson. But, Larson's killing of a young man is a demon he can't seem to bury and leave behind him. Nightmare images and voices haunt him. Cries of "Drop the gun" and the gun aimed at him, belching its deadly projectile straight at him invade his sleep. In less then a heartbeat his keenly honed reflexes and survival instinct return fire spitting death into the chest of his would-be killer. A split second decision and life goes on, but never again the same. The Grand Jury refused to indict him and he was cleared by a departmental hearing board, but the boy's father insists Larson killed his son in cold-blood and will stop at nothing to prove his son was murdered. Captain Farges, the Patrol Commander, and others eagerly join the father in his quest, hoping they can, at last, destroy the life and career of Sergeant Larson. They believe a reporter from a local TV station is the perfect bait to help carry out their scheme. Nicole Santos finds herself in Larson's patrol car under the pretext of preparing a in depth report on the daily routine of the police department. Anxious to prove the man beside her is nothing more than a cold-blooded murderer, she suddenly finds herself in the middle of the blood and gore of child abuse, domestic violence, rape, drug trafficking, fatal collisions and murder and the heartbreak that's a part of them. Along the way she also discovers the intricate cover-up actions to protect a not so sober Watch Commander, whose antics provide some moments of side splitting laughter during roll call. She begins filming the daily roll calls and manages to film the Watch Commander's less than flattering "dance" with a rather portly woman from the payroll division. After a time Nicole begins to be treated as a member of the squad and is invited to some after hours meetings, where she learns more about Larson. Yet, without realizing what is happening, she becomes involved in the daily routines and becomes an active participant in a brawl with two truck drivers. She has to be physically restrained by Larson after she bashes one of the truckers over the head with a lamp. Nicole sees the brutality employed to conceal a major car theft ring and the crushing heartbreak of a fatal accident and begins to wonder how the officers cope with the violence and death. As times passes she begins to realize that she's developing feelings for "Black Jack" Larson---feelings she isn't supposed to have. She confesses her feelings to her sister Anna, who strongly suggests that she pursue her own happiness and not worry about trying to appease everyone else. Behind the scenes, Captain Henry Farges, is having an affair with a policewoman and doing his best to hide their fling. When Larson and his squad discover where Captain Farges is meeting his mistress, and on company time, the plot to film them in the act takes a very hilarious turn. Larson suddenly finds he's having a difficult time repressing his growing feelings for Nicole Santos. When it appears they will finally confess their feelings for each other, Larson overhears a conversation and learns Nicole has been a plant to gather evidence to fire him. His explosive tirade sends her away in tears as he fights to keep himself on track and away from the bottle by declaring war on the drug traffickers. And Nicole sets out to find the truth about Sergeant James Larson. But when it's over, is truth or vengeance the winner?
