Where the big three automakers would eagerly promote their latest vehicle’s. The sweet sounds of Smoky Robinson, Marvin Gaye, and the Supremes use to be heard coming out of the now dilapidated Motown recording studio.It is the late 1970’s, the birthplace of Motown was now decaying. Detroit was littered with crime. Homicides were at a record high and there were more than just simple hints of corruption within city offices. Drug trafficking was running rampant and the young minorities were clearly in-charge of the streets. The city was leading the nation in the circulation of counterfeit currency. Union leaders were competing for top leadership positions. In one highly publicized case the nationally-known leader was missing and thought to be kidnapped or killed.What happened to the gangsters of yesterday? Had they passed on and gone to their just rewards? Had they retired to Florida or Arizona? Not hardly!Two young under-cover officers knew where they were. The old mobsters were still alive and well. They now operated out of the backrooms, well behind the front doors of old neighborhood mom and pop-type business places known as STOREFRONTS.Stolen diamonds, hijacked furs, hot tires, and trafficking in counterfeit currency, as well as two murders were added onto the resume of crimes perpetrated by these old gangsters as the two officers continued to covertly monitor their activities.Ranking supervisors in the police department and several federal law enforcement agencies finally agreed that the situation had become more intense, volatile, and extremely dangerous. The officers were directed to cease further contact with the old hoodlums and shut their operation down. But did they follow the orders from the brass?
