Frank Lucas was the baddest dude on the mean streets of Harlem. His drug gang smuggled heroin from Vietnam to the US in American warplanes and were rumoured to hide drugs in the bodybags of dead GIs. Lucas - whose exploits are to be immortalised in a Hollywood blockbuster starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe in 2007 - is just one of a cast of larger-than-life characters in this chronicle of the history of organised crime in New York's infamous neighbourhood.
