Book Description:
The crime infested intersection of West Fayette and Monroe Streets is well known and cautiously avoided by most of Baltimore. But this notorious corner's 24 hour open air drug market provides the economic fuel for a dying neighborhood. David Simon, an award winning author and crime reporter, and Edward Burns, a 20 year veteran of the urban drug war, tell the chilling story of this desolate crossroad.Through the eyes of one broken family two drug addicted adults and their smart, vulnerable 15 year old son, DeAndre McCollough, Simon and Burns examine the sinister realities of inner cities across the country and unflinchingly assess why law enforcement policies, moral crusades, and the welfare system have accomplished so little. This extraordinary book is a crucial look at the price of the drug culture and the poignant scenes of hope, caring, and love that astonishingly rise in the midst of a place America has abandoned.
