Joe O'Malley is a story about the seventh of the Nine Irish Sons.
No one knows Joe's secret ambition to be a hero, and as a consequence, he trips over his tongue whenever he tries to be romantic, helpful, or cooperative. He can't help himself or control his emotions with his crime-fighting family, and resists their involvement in his life. Yet, succumbs to their influence on his every move.
