    Crack House takes the listener into the dark heart of our cities' most violent and terrifying places, showing how the war on drugs can only be won by constant and forceful vigilance.

Known as the 'Cardigan Squad', its officers were seen as glorified social workers dealing with domestics. The reality was very different.
