A man in Pittsburgh, nicknamed aShark, a turned from drug dealer to a confidential mercenary drug informant for the Attorney Generalas drug task force of Pennsylvania. From a young boy of four or five years old, Shark had hung out with his grandfather and father learning the bar scenes and street life. While growing up, he witnessed them booking numbers, selling booze and acquiring cash. Later, Shark became involved with a circle of bad guys supplying cocaine to the entire city of Pittsburgh. He helped them supply the cocaine until his family pulled together an intervention. But, the intervention didnat go quite normally, and a payment for Sharkas services was offered. He got paid for every cocaine buy whether he was present at the scene or not. Many attempted hits on Shark failed because of Sharkas brother-in-law, Big John, and Sharkas father, the Baker. Big John, 6a7a and an undefeated boxer, tore apart everybody who came after Shark, and the Baker used his police friends and the Larimer Avenue mob to divert Shark from the legal system.
