Baltimore, 2015. Riots were erupting across the city as citizens demanded justice for Freddie Gray, a twenty-five-year old black man who died in police custody. At the same time, drug and violent crime were once again surging.
For years, Sgt. Wayne Jenkins and his team of plain-clothed officers - the Gun Trace Task Force - were the city's lauded and decorated heroes. But all the while they had been stealing drugs and money and gaming the system. Because who would believe the dealers, the smugglers or the murderers over the Federal State Police?
Now, in light of their spectacular trial of late 2018, and in a work of astounding reportage and painstaking self-discovery, Justin Fenton has pieced together this shocking story of systemic corruption.
