    Summary

    1920s, New York. Height of fashion, culture, society, and crime. Alexander Pierce is the most infamous mob boss in the state, and all the states surrounding it. Bucky Barnes is his partner, pet, 'lover' (although that's a term best used loosely when describing their relationship). The arrangement works out for them both - Pierce gets a plaything, and Bucky gets money and luxury without having to get his own hands dirty.

    But Bucky's always had ambitions of his own, he's just never had the means to realise them. Cue Steve, an artist whose immigrant parents have recently died and left him with no way to get by on his own. Steve doesn't look like much at first, but then Bucky sees what he can do with a brush and some paints, and the idea for a new criminal empire starts to build that could rival even Pierce's.
