The Western Kingston community of Tivoli Gardens, a Jamaica Labor Party enclave. Controlled by an army of thugs. Led by the nation's most notorious gangster, the community serves as the headquarters of the Presidential Click. The gang led by the son of the late shower posse leader Lester Lloyd' Jim Brown' Coke whose reign of terror traumatized and killed thousands of people in Jamaica, Canada, the U.K. and the United States. The book tells the shocking story of how the younger Coke surreptitiously slithered his way through the gangs hierarchy, rebranded himself and through his network of killers, not only annexed his community through a series of vices like drug and gunrunning, to become the most powerful man in the country. In a country ravaged by poverty Christopher Coke and his gang began holding and controlling most of the Colombian Cartels cocaine after they were placed under intense federal scrutiny by the U.S. authorities. With billions of dollars at his disposal, Coke became the leviathan of gangsters in the country, and quickly became the most influential and cherished endorsement among the Jamaican political class. When the feds began closing in on Coke in 2011, the entire Jamaican government came to his defense. In a tangled Web of political theatre, and brutal repression, the cruelty of the elusive and Phantom like Coke and his murderous group of enforcers, armed to the gills challenged the might of the F.B.I. and the Jamaican authorities in a murderous showdown that changed the nation's tapestry forever.
