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.

The stunning follow up to Sleepers features six ex-cops and an ex-Mafia made man who form a task force to take out criminals the real police can't touch. Their first target is a super villainess who makes Cruella de Ville look like your favourite auntie. Tough, sentimental and bleak in equal parts, Apaches reaches the parts other hard boiled novels can only try for. (Kirkus UK)

Author Biography - Lorenzo Carcaterra
Lorenzo Carcaterra was born in New York where he still lives. 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. Sleepers, which became a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic, tells of the abuse and torture he suffered in a boy's reformatory, and is now a major Propaganda film.
