Philly MC is the story of Jack Kavanagh, grandson of Danny Kavanagh of A Few Men Faithful, the first of the Kavanagh stories. Jack's is a twisted, tortured life. He struggles with his Irish Republican heritage; whether to side with the IRA, even join them, or follow in his father's footsteps and reject violence as a solution. This is the dark backdrop for the even darker streets of inner city Philadelphia during the 1960s and 70s. Jack's world is a motorcycle underground peopled by the eccentric, the criminal, the crooked cops and agents, the outlaw clubs, mobsters, hookers, junkies and crazies that almost lead to his death by stabbing during the Mummers' Parade on Broad Street. He loves twice and loses. Only a high speed flight out of the country saves him. Only a hideout in the far, far north gives him the anonymity he needs. Only killing the one man who has pursued him all his life quiets his deeply buried demons. Only the final love of his life gives him the personal peace he has been seeking all his life. Written in the first person, Philly MC portrays a shadowy, full throttle world of violence, betrayal and blood. It deals with survival against impossible odds, but, ultimately, it concerns salvation.
