Description: Best mates Eddie, Tom, Bacon,and Soap are cocks-of-the-walk in and around the East End. And why not? They're virile, handsome lads who can hold their own. With this lot, it's all for one and more for all. So, everyone stakes Eddie, a sharp cardshark, for the biggest card game in town. Eddie can't lose...until he does: the game is a setup. Fleeced, Eddie finds himself and his mates in debt to the game's host, never-to-be-crossed underworld boss Hatchet Harry, for a whopping $800,000. If the money isn't on Harry's desk in a week, then Eddie's fingers (to start with) will be, thanks to fearsome debt collector Big Chris. Unless Eddie's father, JD, forfeits his popular bar to his old adversary, Harry. Not bloody likely! So, Eddie and the boys put their heads together and brainstorm a caper that will enable them to pay off Harry and make out like... bandits, as it were. The foursome keeps focused on the big grab, even as all hell breaks loose around them, when a rogues' gallery of miscreants gets in their way. The gang of four finds more big-time trouble, and craziness, than they ever imagined. To save their skins, they'll have to demonstrate that rare trait: honor among thieves. However, making good use of the two barrels of that pair of vintage shotguns couldn't hurt...
