Summary
Born in 1944 in Durham, North Carolina, Matthews left his hometown when he was a teenager, going first to Philadelphia and then to New York City. By the early 1970s, Frank Matthews had become America's biggest drug kingpin. His organization, headquartered in Brooklyn, stretched across 21 states, and he became the only Black gangster to establish direct ties to the French Connection heroin pipeline. ... The $15 to 20 million he disappeared with is roughly equivalent to $100 million in today's cash. The book explores various theories about the fate of Frank Matthews, and the author offers his own conclusion about the mystery.--P. [4] of cover
