520    "Baltimore, 2015. Riots were erupting across the city as 
       citizens demanded justice for Freddie Gray, a twenty-five-
       year old black man who had died while in police custody. 
       At the same time, drug and violent crime were surging, and
       that year, Baltimore would reach its deadliest year in 
       over two decades: 342 homicides in a city of six hundred 
       thousand people. Under intense scrutiny--and a federal 
       investigation over Gray's death--the Baltimore police 
       department turned to a rank-and-file hero, Sergeant Wayne 
       Jenkins, and his elite unit, the Gun Trace Task Force, to 
       help get guns and drugs off the street. And yet, despite 
       intense scrutiny, what The New York Times would call "one 
       of the most startling police corruption scandals in a 
       generation" was unfolding. Entrusted with fixing the 
       city's drug crisis, Jenkins and his posse of corrupt cops 
       were instead stealing from its citizens--skimming from the
       drug busts they made, pocketing thousands in cash found in
       private homes, and planting fake evidence to throw 
       Internal Affairs off their scent. Their brazen crime spree
       would go unchecked for years, and would result in 
       countless wrongful convictions, the death of an innocent 
       person--and the mysterious death of one implicated cop, 
       who was shot in the head just one day before he was 
       scheduled to testify against the Force. Award-winning 
       investigative journalist Justin Fenton has been 
       relentlessly exposing the scandal since 2017, conducting 
       hundreds of interviews and poring over thousands of court 
       documents. The result is an astounding feat of reportage 
       about a rogue police unit, and the American city they held
       hostage"--|cProvided by publisher.
