Summary In 1988, Alphabet City burned with heroin, radicalism, and anti-police sentiment. A plainclothes narcotics cop working in the most high-voltage neighborhood in Manhattan, Detective Sergeant Mike Codella earned the nickname "Rambo" from the local dealers--and a $50,000 bounty on his head. The son of a cop, Codella knew that the further east you got, the deeper you entered the misery, greed, addiction, and violence that comes with an illegal drug trade. Codella made it his personal mission to put away Davey Blue Eyes--a stone-cold murderer and the head of Alphabet City's heroin supply chain. Alphaville, a riveting, no-holds-barred memoir, resurrects the vicious streets Davey Blue Eyes owned and tells the story of how Codella bagged the "Forty Thieves" that surrounded Davey, slowly working his way to the head of the snake one scale at a time.
