"Steve and Irene had just returned from one of the finest weddings the people of Pulaski Place had enjoyed for many moons. Everyone was there because as the bride's father pointed out to an undertaker everyone is a potential customer. Steve was not long out of the army. He and Irene were still very much in love although a strangeness had grown up between them which the wedding festivities ahd helped to dissolve. They wanted to get away from the confusion and be alone. But in the Kowalski kitchen STeve's father was waiting for them. The police had telephoned. Steve's brother Benny was in jail and Steve should use his influence with his friend, the police captain. It did not matter to Benny who was young and sensitive and supremely selfish, that he was jeopardizing Steve's one chance to save himself and Irene and their marriage. Steve was his big brother. Steve was good. Steve was strong. Steve had always come to his rescue he always would." Illustrator: . Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; Inventory No: 130229.
