With fast-paced action and moving testimony Ross explores the rise of armed race hate groups in Trump’s America, the killing of thousands of suspects in the Philippines’ war on drugs, the feuding gangs of Naples, the bandits of Madagascar, the drug epidemic sweeping through Palestine and the plight of migrants attempting the arduous journey through war-torn Libya.
