    During the 1970s New York City was a mecca for heroin and cocaine usage. The majority of these drugs were trafficked and sold by traditional organized crime families. A special unit was put together to gather information on these groups and subsequently dismantle their networks. This unit of the NYPD was able to accomplish this through many hard-working hours and the assistance of an informant, namely "Kenny O." This memoir is the actual story of the relationship of Kenny O and Tony Pesca, the NYPD officer assigned to work with him.
