About the Book:

Miami, 1979.

Rig Lopez-Campbell is a middle-schooler navigating the streets of Liberty City following his father’s imprisonment. Tommy Munoz is a Pedro Pan survivor and former accountant dragged into the violent world of cocaine trafficking. Tina Pacheco is a freelance photo-journalist who captured images of the Dadeland Mall Massacre. Ralph Williams is a homicide detective tasked with stemming the tide of carnage in the face of growing corruption within his own department.

Touring Magic City during the height of the Cocaine Cowboy era, Riders in Disguise takes a broad look at the most influential and violent period in South Florida’s history.
