War Dogs: The True Story of How Three Stoners from Miami Beach Became the Most Unlikely Gunrunners in History
Guy Lawson's Arms and the Dudes is the page-turning, inside account of how three kids from Florida became big-time weapons traders - and how the US government turned on them. In January of 2007, three young stoners from Miami Beach won a $300 million Department of Defense contract to supply ammunition to the Afghanistan military. Instead of fulfilling the order with high-quality arms, they bought cheap Communist-style surplus ammunition from Balkan gunrunners. The dudes then secretly repackaged millions of rounds of shoddy Chinese ammunition and shipped it to Kabul-until they were caught by Pentagon investigators and the scandal turned up on the front page of The New York Times. That's the 'official' story. The truth is far more explosive. It's a trip that goes from a dive apartment in Miami Beach to mountain caves in Albania, the corridors of power in Washington, and the frontlines of Iraq and Afghanistan. This is a story you were never meant to read. 'Like page-turning fiction, but 100% true' - CNBC

Octopus: Sam Israel, the Secret Market, and Wall Street's Wildest Con
Octopus is a real-life thriller that tells the inside story of an audacious hedge-fund fraud and the wild search for a secret financial narket. Sam Israel was a man who seemed to have it all - until the hedge fund he ran, Bayou, imploded and he became the target of a nationwide manhunt. Born into one of America's most illustrious trading families, Israel was determined to strike out on his own. So after apprenticing with one of the greatest hedge fund traders of the 1980's, Sam founded his own fund and promised his investors guaranteed profits. With the proprietary computer program he'd created, he claimed to be able to predict the future. But his future was already beginning to unravel. After suffering devastating losses and fabricating fake returns, Israel knew it was only a matter of time before his real performance would be discovered, so when a former black-ops intelligence operative told him about a 'secret market' run by the Fed, Israel bet his last $150 million on a chance to make billions. Thus began his year-long adventure in 'the Upperworld' a society populated by clandestine bankers, shady European nobility, and spooks issuing cryptic warnings about a mysterious cabal known as the Octopus. Whether the 'secret market' was real or a con, Israel was all in - and as the pressures mounted and increasingly sinister violence crept into his life, he struggled to break free of the Octopus' tentacles. 'Octopus is a reminder that the truth sometimes is stranger than fiction . . . A Wall Street thriller for our time.' Alex Berenson, bestselling author of The Faithful Spy and The Shadow Patrol 'A rollicking, rollercoaster ride of a book that is utterly impossible to put down.' Scott Anderson, author of Triage

So began his crazy year-long adventure in a world populated by clandestine bankers, conspiracy theories, and gun-toting spooks issuing cryptic warnings about a mysterious cabal known only as the Octopus.

The Brotherhoods: The True Story of Two Cops Who Murdered for the Mafia
The Brotherhoods is the chilling chronicle of the alleged crimes and betrayals of NYPD Detectives Stephen Caracappa and Louis Eppolito, notorious rogue cops who stand charged with the ultimate form of police corruption-shielding their crimes behind their badges while they worked for the mob. These crimes included murder, kidnapping, torture, and the betrayal of an entire generation of New York City detectives and federal agents. This gripping real-life detective story reveals two brotherhoods, both with hierarchies, rituals, and codes of conduct. Chased for seven years by William Oldham, the brilliant and determined detective who didn't let the case die, Detectives Caracappa and Eppolito are at the centre of an investigation that moves from the mobbed-up streets of Brooklyn to Hollywood sets and the Las Vegas strip. Co-written with prize-winning investigative journalist Guy Lawson, the story spans three decades and showcases a cast of characters that runs the gamut from capo psychopaths to grieving mothers to a group of retired detectives and investigators working to see that justice is done. This quintessential American mob tale, both bizarre and compelling, ranks with such modern crime classics as Serpico, Donnie Brasco, and Wiseguy.
