Conlon, who is fourth-generation NYPD, presents an anecdotal history of the force, spanning the notorious Tammany era; the Knapp Commission; the controversial Abner Louima and Amadou Diallo cases; the Guiliani era, with its precipitous drop in crime rates soured by an exponential growth in the drug trade; and an evocative account of sifting through remains at the Twin Towers, where circling birds provide clues to human remains. Tom Stechschulte's narration will pull you into the wreckage and wonder. Running the gamut from a full-throated black woman from the projects to street-talking tough guys, Stechschulte delivers Conlon's story with intensity. K.A.T.
