Overview

In the early 1970s, the federal government undertook the investigation of the corruption penetrating the entire criminal justice system in New York City, particularly the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) of the Narcotics division of the NYPD. Young and enthusiastic, Detective Robert Leuci was chosen by federal prosecutors Rudolf Giuliani, Maurice Nadjari, and Tom Puccio to probe this world of corruption as an undercover agent.

Operating in deep cover, with only the prosecutors and the police commissioner aware of his dual role, Leuci walked a tightrope that made his life a nightmare. He was in mortal danger from both sides.

In a world where conflicting pressures are excruciating, who should bear the burden of being right when so much of the system is wrong?

Having read true crime cop stories for 30 years, I find this one to be the best. It starts out good and just gets better as it goes. Buy it and see if you don't agree.
