Wise Guy Heaven
Arson, loansharking, drug dealing, extortion - it was all in a day's work for Charlie Wilhelm. In Baltimore, an organized crime syndicate of over 200 men took orders from him and his partner, strongarm enforcer Billy Isaacs. For over twenty years, Charlie lived the sweet life, making $10,000 a week in untaxed cash.
Ordered To Kill
But everything changed in 1995, when Isaacs demanded that Wilhelm take out two men he suspected of cheating him. Charlie Wilhelm didn't want to kill - but he didn't want to die, either. Turning to FBI Agent Bruce Hall - who'd grown up in the old neighborhood with Charlie - he became a double agent, working undercover against his former associates.
Danger lay everywhere, from suspicious hoodlums to dirty cops and even a Mob tipster working in the U.S. Attorney's office. One misstep could spell death not only for Charlie, but for his wife and children. Yet Wilhelm's efforts not only saved lives - they resulted in twenty convictions for offenses ranging from bribery and conspiracy to drug dealing and murder. Now, in his own words, Charlie Wilhelm tells his incredible true story of a wild life lived on both sides of the law.
