In the 1980s, a wave of Chinese from Fujian province began arriving in America. Like other immigrant groups before them, they showed up with little money but with an intense work ethic and an unshakeable belief in the promise of the United States. Many of them lived in a world outside the law, working in a shadow economy overseen by the ruthless gangs that ruled the narrow streets of New York´s Chinatown. The figure who came to dominate this Chinese underworld was a middle-aged grandmother known as Sister Ping. Her path to the American dream began with an unusual business run out of a tiny noodle store on Hester Street. From her perch above the shop, Sister Ping ran a full-service underground bank for illegal Chinese immigrants. But her real business - a business that earned an estimated $40 million - was smuggling people. As a ´´snakehead´´, she built a complex and often vicious global conglomerate, relying heavily on familial ties, and employing one of Chinatown´s most violent gangs to protect her power and profits.

Indeed, Sister Ping´s empire only came to light in 1993 when the Golden Venture, a ship loaded with 300 undocumented immigrants, ran aground off a Queens beach. It took New York´s fabled ´´Jade Squad´´ and the FBI nearly 10 years to untangle the criminal network and home in on its unusual mastermind. The Snakehead is a panoramic tale of international intrigue and a dramatic portrait of the underground economy in which America´s 12 million illegal immigrants live. Based on hundreds of interviews, Patrick Radden Keefe´s sweeping narrative tells th 1. Language: English. Narrator: Feodor Chin.
