Summary
  • " ... an astonishing expose of Russian organized crime, its growing power in the United States, and its terrifying implications for the rest of the world
  • "... an astonishing expose of Russian organized crime, its growing power in the United States, and its terrifying implications for the rest of the world
  • "The black-market corruption of the Brezhnev era proved the perfect breeding ground for organized crime. Beginning in the 1970s, Soviet emigres - including a large number of felons and murderers the USSR was happy to get rid of - began arriving in the United States and a number of them quickly established themselves as a major criminal force in New York, Las Vegas, and elsewhere." "But it was the breakup of the Soviet Union that made the Russian mob what it is today. In a weakened, impoverished Russia, it quickly became the dominant power. And it has now spread to every corner of the United States, infiltrating its banks and brokerage firms - and American law enforcement is just waking up to this enormous problem."--BOOK JACKET
