Both an insider's view and historical account, this memoir reveals the workings of the New York Police Department from the 1970s to the current day. It chronicles police corruption, organized crime, and the development of laws and task forces to battle them. Through the story of the investigation into murder/kidnapping/racketeering charges against NYPD Detectives Stephen Caracappa and Louis Eppolito, the two brotherhoods of the NYPD and organized crime are both juxtaposed and intertwined. Dick Hill's varied intonation helps maintain interest, and the dialogue of both police and Mafia wise guys flows well. Hill gives Oldham, the lead detective who investigated the case, an authentic-sounding voice, and the result is more than a tell-all memoir as shocking betrayals of power are revealed.
