Leon Hubbard had it coming. So when the arrogant and near psychotic youth is killed on a South Philadelphia construction site in front of the whole crew, everyone who knows him wants to bury the bad news with the body. All, that is, except two people: Leon's mother and the local columnist, a drunk on a mission. Because only a mother could love a boy like that. And only a crusading outsider would dream of digging too deeply into the mean streets and wasted lives of the neighborhood they call God's Pocket.
