Drug lords, Mafia, crooked cops, and Balkan bada$$

This is The Witness, John Milton style. Even though the plot is nearly identical, the story is still great, full of quietly lethal John Milton justice.

There is no parallel to the Texas Alamo; it is merely the unexplained nickname for the toughest NY precinct. Through some coincidences, Milton decides to becomes involved with the kid who witnessed the bad cops murder someone who could have fingered them. As usual, Milton is mild-mannered and reasonable until violence is all that's left. It is bittersweet as Milton's introspection concludes that he can never have a family, never have friends, and must always keep moving. All he can do is attempt to complete The Ninth Step.

As usual, David Thorpe is great, although he makes some pronunciation errors trying to sound like a New York cop. We can forgive him for that.
