Alex is back from the Great War a broken man. His family think him dead and he is living on the streets like a hobo, haunted by the things he has seen and done during his time in Europe.
But after a chance meeting with a face from his past, Alex finds himself back in the arms of the Jewish criminal underworld of the Lower East Side, and back in the good graces of his former bosses - despite the unfortunate incident with his old friend, Sammy.
Alex is on the rise again and as America enters the Prohibition years, his life sees him in charge of booze running, with a little side-line in assassination courtesy of his war-time sniper training - that brings him into contact with some big names of the mob scene.
But with success comes danger. Can Alex really have it all in the dog-eat-dog world of the American gangster?
There is nothing he likes better so he does as much nothing as he possibly can. He has travelled extensively in Europe and the US and has visited Asia on several occasions. Leopold holds a Philosophy degree and tries not to drop it too often.
He lives near London and is married with one wife, one child and no pets.
