 (Volumes 1, 2, & 3)

An adolescent hoodlum’s desire to be a superstar recording artist takes him to the fringes of organized crime where a failed extortion leads him to his true calling. When the CIA needs recruits to carry out dangerous spy missions their polished agents would rather not do themselves, the hoodlum turned inmate is found languishing in the Miami-Dade County Jail awaiting trial. Street-smart, confident to the point of being cocky, and extremely intelligent, he is sprung out of jail to be sent on top secret missions dating from the Bay of Pigs through the Fall of Saigon all while blatantly building a drug and crime empire from Florida to New York.

Adapted from the book based on a true story Smooth Criminal, A One-Man American Crime Wave by Bill Deane.
