Gary Webb had an inborn journalistic tendency to trace down corruption and reveal it. For over thirty-four years, he wrote tales approximately corruption from county, nation, and federal degrees. He had a nearly magnetic impression to those types of tales, and it used to be nearly as though the tales came across him. It was once his reward, and, eventually, it was once his downfall.

He used to be top recognized for his tale Dark Alliance, written for the San Jose Mercury information in 1996. In it Webb associated the CIA to the crack-cocaine epidemic in l. a. throughout the Iran Contra scandal. His purely released booklet, Dark Alliance continues to be a vintage of latest journalism. yet his existence consisted of even more than this one tale, and The Killing Game is a set of his top investigative tales from his starting on the Kentucky put up to his finish on the Sacramento information & assessment. It comprises Webb's sequence on the Kentucky put up on equipped crime within the coal undefined, on the Cleveland undeniable broker on Ohio State's negligent scientific board, and at the US military's investment of first-person shooter games.

The Killing Game is a commitment to his life's paintings outdoor of Dark Alliance, and it's an exhibition of investigative journalism in its truest form.
