Description: There's never been a book about the Chinese mob in America, because no gang member has ever been willing to break their code of silence. Until now. In a triumph of literary journalism, John Sack intimately introduces us to this secret society and its top criminal mastermind, reporting from the homes, hotel rooms, crime scenes, and jail cells of Johnny Kon and his fellow gang members.

From Kon's escape from poverty in China, to his rapid rise to power in organized crime, The Dragonhead traces the path of the man responsible for over a billion dollars' worth of heroin entering the U.S. With astonishing savvy, Sack unveils the humanity behind the previously impenetrable wall of the Chinese underworld, rife with shocking crimes as well as unforgiving codes of honor. By turns fascinating and repellent, Johnny Kon is ultimately unforgettable.
