Well researched, beautifully written, a real non-fiction page turner. Anyone interested in crime and corruption in old New York should love this book.

A Forgotten Classic 19 Mar. 2012
By H. Van Meter - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is the only book written by New Yorker reporter Andy Logan. Her writing style was pristine. Here, she clearly lays out the complicated facts of the case and draws a fascinating, nuanced picture of the politics and underworld of New York as it was before Prohibition. That Becker was corrupt is certain. That he was innocent of arranging Rosenthal's murder is also clear. He became a scapegoat for anti-corruption forces and was largely tried in the feverish press. Logan makes a convincing argument that his execution was a travesty of justice. The contention of death penalty proponents that the innocent are never executed is undermined by this case. That New York State has reintroduced the death penalty a century later is a sad commentary on the flaccid consciences and dim imaginations of the state's politicians.

A great read and a shame that it was only issued in paperback 40 years ago. F. Scott Fitzgerald fans will remember the discussion of the case in THE GREAT GATSBY.

Pretty convincing argument that Becker was "framed" 12 Nov. 2000
By Tony the Tour Guy - Published on
Format: Unbound
This book covers what could be called NYC's "OJ" case. Charlie Becker was a crooked, ruthless cop. But did he REALLY order the execution of a gambling boss who had gone to the press about police corruption? ATE makes a pretty convincing case for his having been "framed" by the political powers that be.
The book also offers lots of glimpses into the old NY underworld.
