In 1993, a boat carrying 300 near-starving illegal immigrants from China ran aground off the coast of New York, an event that led to a criminal investigation that uncovered an international human smuggling ring run by an unlikely crime boss—a middle-aged grandmother known as Sister Ping. Patrick Radden Keefe’s true-crime thriller The Snakehead: An Epic Tale of the Chinatown Underworld and the American Dream reveals this secret world of gang violence, underground crime, and human smuggling, as well as the 10-year investigation that uncovered it.
