Sex Money Murder: A Story of Crack, Blood, and Betrayal (WW Norton) by Jonathan Green

A 2019 Edgar Award Nominee and a CrimeReads Best Crime Book of the Year

“Exceptionally authentic.”― Jill Leovy, The New York Times Book Review

Sex Money Murder is a ferocious and long-overdue piece of true storytelling about a time and a place that saw the worst of the dope business. Within it are remarkable tales of faith in a standard, friendship or what passes for it, greed, decay, the worst and the best of America.”― Sam Quinones, author of Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic

“Doesn’t pull any punches….Green’s portraits of the good guys and the bad guys are richly layered and compelling: this is no simple cops-and-robbers story. It’s a story about an entire way of life and the way people on both sides of the law have been affected by it. A fine piece of crime nonfiction.” ― Booklist
