    Description

    Chronicling the rise and fall of Sex Money Murder, one of the most violent and notorious gangs of its era, and of the dedicated detectives and prosecutors struggling to stem the tide of violence, reporter Jonathan Green creates a visceral and devastating portrait of a New York City borough. 

    In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Bronx had one of the highest per capita murder rates in the country. The reason was simple: as the use of crack cocaine surged, replacing heroin as the high of choice, dealers and gangs staked claims to territory and consumers through intimidation and murder, and families found themselves fractured by crime and incarceration. Based on years of research and extraordinary access to former gang members, Green creates an epic character-driven narrative, drawing on first-person interviews, police reports, and court transcripts to offer a unique and engrossing work of gritty urban reportage. Magisterial in its scope, Sex Money Murder offers an extraordinary perspective on modern-day America.

    Narrator using the N word was cringe worthy

    Really enjoyed the book, well written and researched, but would have strongly preferred an African American narrator for a book that is so heavily influenced with slang. Was off putting hearing the n word over and over in wrong use . Great book non the less.

    Great book, iffy choice on the narrator

    Well written book, but they definitely should have gotten a Black man to read this. The narrator did a good job otherwise.

    Best book I read and listened to in 2018!!

    This book was fantastic! The author did an amazing job weaving the stories of the gang members, victims and cops together. The writing was superb.

    The narrator was good, not fantastic, but did not detract from the story.

    Anyone that wants to know who about inner city violence should read this book. I may even listen to it again.

    Chilling

    Excellent and frightening novel, painstakingly researched by Jonathan Green. Gives the listener a real insight into the gang world of The Bronx in the 1980s and 1990s, both from the gang member perspective and law enforcement perspective. If you liked The Wire, you will like this...

    Great book

    This book is great. Very detailed. I read a few complaints about the book not being ready by a black man. The book was written by a white man.
