Product description

Review

"This was an excellent book...much more then was covered in the documentary...very open and honest and held nothing back...I was a former federal agent and fully understand how these things can happen...great read!!!" - Philip Karge

"I knew there was corruption in the New York Police Department back in the 80s but I never dreamed how bad it really was until I read this book. This was a real eye-opener for me as well as a real page turner. This is a very well written book and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes true stories as well as true crime." - Lee Huseman

"Gritty book telling true story of corruption in New York Police Dept. Having followed the headlines when this story broke, the authors told it all that wasn't in the news and pulled it together in a book that you can't put down. Very well written, good historical context, transcripts from interviews all placed in chronological order that make for a riveting read." - Virginia, Amazon

Good, but not as great as the documentary Precinct 75, which it's based from. Worth a read though.

Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this publication free of charge in return for a honest review.
I have not been paid for this review.

Astonishing true story of two young NYPD recruits that exploit their position and power over a number of years to their financial benefit. The level of corruption involved really knew no boundaries (taking money from drug dealers to turn a blind eye, becoming drug dealers themselves, stealing drugs and cash from the scene of crimes. protection ring etc etc).
The part that really surprised me is how blatant they were in their activities and yet they continued to get away with it year after year whilst making no real effort to hide the fruits of their labour from their colleagues (exploiting the bond that existed whereby a cop wouldn't shop another cop).
A real eye opener and thoroughly enjoyable read.
Recommended.

An eye opener of a book on corruption in the New York Police department in the 1980's. If you enjoy true crime stories, this book is a must read. Many thanks to Net Galley for my copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE, READS LIKE GOODFELLAS IN BLUE! 25 Dec. 2016
By Maria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Powerful tale of not only true crime but true love as well. The authors tell us what it was like to be a police officer in the crime ridden 80s. Facing temptations ranging from alcohol and loose female cops to mounds of drugs and dirty money available for the taking.
Bless his wife for standing by her man through the craziness of it all and having the wherewithal to get outstanding legal representation to keep their family together.
I remembered reading about some of this in the papers but never realized the extent of the corruption. I'd recommend this book to any fan of law enforcement or true crime aficionados.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo! 7 Mar. 2017
By Sharon K. Schiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the best true crime book I have read so far. It was the most gripping because of the the many people that were involved with sins of corruption, sins of betrayal of loved ones, and sins of omission. Who could a person trust? Although I have been personally far removed from this subculture of drugs and easy money, I can see how some career cops could have been tempted to lie and steal by using their direct access to drugs and cash on the job, or could have been tempted to fall into a state of passive despair and low morale. This true story had a satisfying resolution with the emotionally excruciating betrayal of a former partner-in-crime "friend" decided upon by one who was in deep trouble himself, in order to prevent further harm and to save a life.
