Plot

Detective Richie Roberts is determined to bring down crime lord Frank Lucas. With profits rolling on through his control of the heroin trade, Lucas is a slippery catch, even with Detective Roberts' investigative skills. Lucas has defeated every rival, spreading his domain across Harlem and Manhattan, and has somehow found a way to import his product straight from Thailand. With his high-grade heroin and affordable prices, he's dominating the market, letting him buy off everyone from the mafia to City Hall. Detective Roberts will need every trick he can think of to have any shot of defeating Lucas.
