Born and raised in the Projects of Richmond, VA, Derrick Richards’ life was changed. His destiny to become a federal agent was forged at an early age when he witnessed the untimely death of his older brother and father figure Carlo at the hands of a up and coming drug dealer.
In the years that followed he worked tirelessly at accomplishing his goal of becoming an agent with the Bureau. When he was inducted into the organization upon graduation from college, he excelled at infiltrating and bringing down the drug crews and dealers that he hated with a passion!
It was Derrick’s skill for fitting in with the street element that brought him to the attention of his superiors, who quickly transferred him from Charlotte, NC, to New York City. His new assignment was to enter one of the largest and most deadly criminal organizations ever.
