about this book

The investigation into the late-night murder of a college student on the West Side Highway leads to the Wild Cowboys, a group of young men who for years terrorized Upper Manhattan and the Bronx while running a $30,000-a-day drug business. What follows is a tale of dogged pursuit that offers a fascinating inside look at the workings of a complex police investigation, and a satisfying account of how a city took back its streets.

“Chilling in its penetrating detail.”–New York Daily News

“Compelling and, at times, disturbing.... With each turn of the page, Gangbusters draws you into a dangerous world.”–Former New York City Police Commissioner William J. Bratton, in The New York Observer
