In 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.
