Armed and Dangerous - The Hunt for One of America's Most Wanted
- United States
More informationAs an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, William Queen must tackle a number of challenging cases, including going undercover to investigate a group of violent skinheads and infiltrating and busting a ring trafficking in high-powered explosives, drugs, and firearms. In the winter of 1985, he faces his toughest mission to date: he must apprehend Mark Stephens, a notorious narcotics trafficker who has been terrorizing the communities around Los Angeles with frequent rampages involving machine guns and hand grenades. Nobody has been able to catch him, but Queen is determined to take him down. Queen's unique expertise is not taught in any police academy or ATF training seminar-he honed his outdoorsman abilities as a kid. Adept at hunting and trapping and living for weeks in the wild, Queen will use these skills-along with surveillance, confidential informants, and intelligence gathering-as he doggedly tracks Stephens, a chase that culminates in a gripping showdown high in the San Bernardino Mountains.
A fascinating look into the daily life of an ATF agent and a taut portrayal of a monthlong manhunt, ARMED AND DANGEROUS is a harrowing true story of life-or-death suspense.
