Description - Apaches by Lorenzo Carcaterra
In the early 1980s, a new scourge is unleashed upon an unsuspecting America. Crack cocaine. The tenuous grip on law and order is finally broken as organized gangs run amok. None of their leaders is more evil than Lucia Carney whose drug empire grows and grows at the cost of thousands of lives, many of them innocent ones. With the forces of law and order incapable of breaking the gangs, a new type of enforcement is required; a rogue force, outside the restrictions of the police code. These men and women are called the Apaches. They have little left to loose, having already lost their police badges as a result of the wounds and disability sustained in the course of duty. They are the avenging angels who will descend on Carney's empire and, irrespective of personal cost, destroy it forever.

He was a reporter on the New York Daily News before he wrote his first book of non-fiction, A Safe Place, which recounts how he discovered, at the age of fourteen, that his father had murdered his first wife.
