TONY RAFAEL is a Los Angeles-based writer who has spent the last ten years researching street gangs. Living in the “ground zero” of the gang culture, he has interviewed scores of active and retired gang members and has been granted unprecedented access to active investigations and criminal trials.
It has been called the most dangerous gang in American history. In Los Angeles alone it is responsible for over 100 homicides per year. Although it has fewer than 300 members, it controls a 40,000-strong street army that is eager to advance its agenda.
