BOOK COVER FLAP:
The characters presented in this novel are fictional. They portray the lives of the victims, the offenders, and the courageous that experienced the chilling drama of gang carnage -- violence that, unfortunately, continues to overwhelm families and entire communities in Chicago.
The main characters are a tribute to the detectives who were assigned to the "original" Gang Intelligence Unit of the Chicago Police Department. These men waged a never-ending battle against Chicago Street gangs. Years later, they were credited for convincing the department to group gang violence and related murders, developing a strategy to combat the rising increase in illicit drug sales in the city.
