SEX MONEY MURDER

A Story of Crack, Blood, and Betrayal

(WW Norton, Coming May 2018)

A SEARING PORTRAIT OF THE CRACK EPIDEMIC AND THE VIOLENT DRUG WARS THAT ONCE RAVAGED THE BRONX

A riveting, deeply human true-life thriller of deadly New York crack gangs that also breaks fresh ground on one of the most important issues of our time, the murders of young black men. With years of extraordinary reporter's access, crisp, cinematic writing, and no small amount of courage, Jonathan Green is the South Bronx Boswell of ruthless killers in a tale reminiscent of Gay Talese's classic inside portrait of the Bonanno crime family, Honor Thy Father.

– MICHAEL CAPUZZO
author of the New York Times bestsellers Close to Shore and The Murder Room

A ferocious and long-overdue piece of true storytelling about a time and a place that saw the worst of the dope business. Within it are remarkable tales of faith in a standard, friendship or what passes for it, greed, decay, the worst and the best of America.

– SAM QUINONES
author of Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic

Green's insights into a culture unavailable to most readers are invaluable....A disturbing yet necessary, significant book by a journalist willing to place himself in danger.

MURDER IN THE HIGH HIMALAYA

An unforgettable account of the brutal killing of Kelsang Namtso—a seventeen-year-old Tibetan nun fleeing to India—by Chinese border guards. Witnessed by dozens of Western climbers, Kelsang's death sparked an international debate over China's savage oppression of Tibet. Adventure reporter Jonathan Green has gained rare entrance into this shadow-land at the rooftop of the world. In his affecting portrait of modern Tibet, Green raises enduring questions about morality and the lengths we go to achieve freedom.
