It's time to take back the docks from a hard-nosed gangster. Jim throws everything in the book at him and a few things that aren't; pressure from the cops, pressure from "the family", a little sabotage, the long lost daughter of his partner who talks to her father's ghost who he just happens to have murdered and, what the heck, the ghost ship on which he murdered his partner. Will that be enough to break him? Probably not. But the "family" may not agree. Written by David Foss
