Nineteen-year-old Judson Two-Bears “Hootie” Hootier has just been released from prison and is determined to go straight. Then, waiting for a subway train, he meets Bubba Yablonsky, a giant of a man who proceeds to shoot a rat right in front of Hootie and the other passengers. Hootie soon learns that Bubba was a star basketball player until he was convicted of killing one of his teammates. Meanwhile, NYPD cop Peter Chigorin is assigned to investigate a brutal gangland-style execution that coincidentally occurred just a few blocks from the subway platform where Bubba shot the rat. Unaware of the investigation, Hootie is enjoying Bubba’s luxurious apartment and trying to figure out Bubba’s slightly weird girlfriend, Amelia. What Hootie doesn’t know is that he will soon be drawn into a dark vortex of danger, violence, and death. Solomita gets this tense, gritty cops-and-robbers drama just right. For aficionados of classic noir, there’s violence, blood, guns, drugs, a disturbing portrayal of New York’s seedy underbelly, and, of course, that overwhelming sense of impending doom. --Emily Melton
