Reviews

"[This] blistering true-crime memoir of addiction and undercover work is unlike any we've ever read." --Entertainment Weekly

"90 Church is a wild, terrifying, unpredictable, ride with ruthless, violent men--the sort who don't count the dead bodies and ruined lives they leave strewn behind them. And I'm referring to the 'good guys': The twisted, grizzled lawmen of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. They pursue powerful Mafia families, slick amoral business pros, beautiful people, and Colombian cocaine barons alike with equal zest. The resolution of every glitch or kink in the process almost always involves a murder or two. With unerring pace and clear style, ex-agent Unkefer creates an irresistible and sometimes funny--but ultimately heartbreaking--first person narrative of his own, and his agency's, self-destruction. Treading the pages, the reader enters the upside down world of dealers, users, informants, assassins, pimps, crooked cops, and slimy middle class middle men. I found it shocking on multiple levels--the treachery of the agents to themselves, the informants, the criminals, their bureau, society, and their families. And in the end, the war on drugs wasn't theirs to lose--or win." --Marc Songini, author of Boston Mob: The Rise and Fall of the New England Mob and Its Most Notorious Killer
