Overview

Two decorated NYPD detectives with access to the department's most sensitive information, Louie Eppolito and Steve Caracappa sold their badges to the Mafia—and became murderers for the mob.

The most dangerous corrupt cops in American history, they left behind a pile of bodies when they retired in the early 1990s. For more than a decade it looked as if they were going to get away with it—until Detective Tommy Dades and Brooklyn Assistant DA Mike Vecchione turned a seemingly dead-end investigation into one of New York City's greatest law-and-order stories.

For the first time, the complete and shocking truth can be told of the historic case that rocked the world of law enforcement.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The 2005 case of "mafia cops" Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa rocked New York and the brotherhood that protects it. Two crooked NYPD officers who, throughout their careers, worked as hitmen for the Lucchese crime family, the duo came to justice only after 20 years of effort from law enforcement officers determined to put together all the pieces. Dades, a detective on the case, and Vecchione, a prosecutor, tell the story of the professionals who actually broke the case in a thorough step-by-step procedural. Author Fisher keeps the narrative moving with a good balance of police work, politics and mafia drama, channeling with authority (and the coaching of Dades and Vecchione) the voices of the street as well as the police force. Those expecting a Sopranos-style mob narrative will find this heavy on the police work, but true crime fans should be happy to get past the hype and into the nitty-gritty of this infamous case.

    Good read, interesting, absorbing

    For a Mafia junkie like myself this was a good read. I had followed this saga in the papers back when it happened and this book fills in any blanks that the coverage then had for me. The writing is pretty straight forward, I don't feel that the author had an ax to grind. A good read.
