Kevin Deutsch - The Triangle: A Year on the Ground with New York's Bloods and Crips

Award-winning criminal justice reporter Kevin Deutsch reveals the harrowing true story of a neighborhood blighted by gang warfare.  "Deutsch's immersion in the community is evident from the range of people he profiles—from a newly initiated gang member to a college graduate who left the corporate world for the drug trade (he likens the long-running Bloods-Crips feud to "some kind of corporate fight you'd read about in the Wall Street Journal, only this is about our kind of business: rock cocaine"), to the ex-gang members and churchgoers who patrol the area nightly in an effort to bring peace...This is a crucial and enthralling work on gangs and the communities they inhabit."--Publishers Weekly (starred review).
