In the late 1980s, Manhattan's Alphabet City was a no man's land that city-savvy visitors avoided. With its burned-out slums and heroin hangouts, the Lower East Side on the wrong side of First Avenue felt like a separate country, ruled by drug dealers. At the top of this punk pyramid was Davie Blue Eyes, a cold-eyed killer who despised competitors and the police, especially a plainclothes narcotics cop named Mike Codella, the author of this memoir. This vivid, bust-by-bust account of the downfall of the mobster and his Forty Thieves henchmen has an in-your-face force that will make you double lock all your doors.
