Confessions of the Meek and the Valiant is not your father's -- or Godfather's -- mob story. The notorious underworld gangs of South Boston are gone, but loyal men still meet to glorify them in the backrooms of the raucous neighborhood pubs. So when Riley Lynch, a shy, bright and likable Irish-Catholic kid from Southie is accepted to a prestigious college in New York, his proud family and their old connections rally to support him. But in doing so, they inadvertently expose disturbing secrets from his family's past that cause Riley to question everything he was raised to believe. And it is only through the passion of a pure and innocent heart that he and those he loves can be rescued from his family's dark legacy, and from the control of a rising, new and ambitious mob kingpin. Confessions of the Meek and the Valiant is a fast-paced chronicle of love, family, adventure and redemption. It is a story of a young man's quest to discover who he is, who he wants to be, and whether he can accept what the world believes he has become.
