Wild Cowboys by Robert Jackall
Book DescriptionIn this bloody urban saga, Robert Jackall recounts how street cops, detectives and prosecutors pieced together a puzzle-like story of narcoties trafficking, money laundering and murders for hire, all centred on a vicious gang of Dominican youths known as the Wild Cowboys. These boyhood friends, operators of a lucrative crack business in the Bronx, routinely pistol-whipped their workers, murdered rivals, shot witnesses to their crimes and eventually turned on one another in a deadly civil war.

Street Stories, Paperback (May 2009)
Detectives work the streets - an arena of action, vice, lust, greed, aggression, and violence - to gather shards of information about who did what to whom. This work examines the moral ambiguities of the detectives' world as they shuttle between the streets and a bureaucratic behemoth.
