[Deutsch] describes a complex problem rooted in a lack of hope and
opportunity that many participants see as insoluble. This is a
crucial and enthralling work on gangs and the communities they
inhabit. * Publishers Weekly, Starred Review *
The Triangle offers a gripping account of [Deutsch's year with the gangs], a particularly violent one because of an all-out war between the gangs for territory in which to deal drugs. . . .[H]is account seems grounded in fact and his research thorough. The result is a compelling story of a facet of American life that doesn't seem likely to change anytime soon. * The Columbus Dispatch *
It is obvious from the level of detail in The Triangle that Deutsch was deeply invested in this story and deeply involved with it's participants. * Newsday *
