Born into a family of modest means and respectability, Danny Fisher was gradually driven downward into the world of crime, racketeering, and poverty. His bitterness, his homesickness over the loss of the house in Brooklyn that was given to him for his eighth birthday, and his feud with his harsh father, pulled him one way; his natural decency and his love for a sweet Italian girl, Nellie Petito, pulled him another. Danny was a boxer—a sensational amateur and potential champion—and he might have gone straight had the fight promoters not tried to exert pressure. Nevertheless, the driving force behind Danny’s actions was always his sustaining love for Nellie. In a story that is realistic and yet compassionate, Harold Robbins reveals what makes the Danny Fishers what they are. Download and start listening now!

    " It was a fascinating and compelling story with an unexpected twist (at least it was for me). I would have never even thought about reading this if my 63 year old mother said it was one of her favorite books when she was my age. It's not my favorite book but it's definitely on the top of my list. "
