Reads like a mashup of The Godfather and Chinatown, complete with gun battles, a ruthless kingpin and a mountain of cash. Except that it's all true.
Essential reading. . . . A rich, beautifully told story, so suspenseful and with so many unexpected twists that in places it reads like a John le Carré novel.
A powerful piece of reportage about the violent underworld of New York’s Chinatown
A masterwork . . . In this single tale about a global criminal, Keefe finds a story of quintessentially American hope.
