From the author of The Laundrymen, The Merger, The Sink and The Takedown, here is Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Richard Nixon and the history of dirty money. It is the story of 20th century money laundering and of 21st century methods used by organized criminals around the world.
In a world where fiction defines criminal investigations, THE TAKEDOWN sets the record straight --- the true story of two unlikely people who, against the odds, spend 15 years bringing down the most brutal cocaine cartel of them all.
