Deadly Force

Author(s): Carsten Stroud

Crime & Punishment

Carsten Stroud brings a reads-like-a-novel style of journalism to this nonfiction book on the U.S. Marshals' fugitive apprehension unit. In Deadly Force he follows marshal Luke Zitto in his vendetta-like pursuit of two men whose brutal careers in crime turn out to be unexpectedly linked. In going after the "Yellow Man," a hatchet-wielding murderer with ties to organized crime, Zitto will at last find himself in a position to also nail the man who raped a U.S. marshal, a close friend of Frank. But the hurdles he faces in taking down these men lead him to a terrible conclusion: at least one of them is being secretly protected by the U.S. government.

Stroud's gripping prose turns this tale of urban warriors and predators into a classic of law enforcement.
