Description

The brutal and compulsive true tale of two cops' attempt to cleanse a New York neighbourhood of crime in a heroin epidemic

Bruce Bennett's writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Sun; he has also performed and recorded music with the A-Bones, Hasil Adkins, Action Swingers, Yo La Tengo, and Andre Williams. He lives and works in Brooklyn.

Résumé

Welcome to Alphabet City, Manhattan's most crime-ridden neighbourhood with murder, rape and violence hitting record levels the streets, fuelled by a drug problem thatâ™s got the city by the throat. It was into this vision of hell that Mike Codella and his partner Gio stepped in 1988, two plainclothes narcs expected just to pull a few street arrests to keep statistics looking good, and try to get out alive. But Mike had his eyes on something bigger. Davey Blue Eyes: local kingpin, druglord and stone cold murderer. Just one drawback - no one even knew what he looked like. Fascinating, brutal and told with a furious, even poetic energy, Alphaville stands shoulder to shoulder with other modern true crime classics such as Serpico, The French Connection, Wiseguy, or David Simon's Homicide.

'Nerve-shreddingly real. Addictive, brilliant and compelling' R.J. Ellory, bestselling author of A Simple Act of Violence
