The Detectives: Their Toughest Cases In Their Own Words by Peter A. Micheels

From rape to murder, from bombings to hostage-taking, the world of the New York City Police Department's detectives is full of danger-and full of opportunities for heroism. These accounts from top investigators tell how it really goes down; never have detectives spoken so openly and in such detail. Here are the stories of what it takes: going underground to catch a dangerous and seemingly untouchable drug dealer, defusing a bomb factory located in an apartment building with over three hundred people in it, investigating a brutal and elusive rapist who poses as a gypsy cab driver. And for every crime there is a deeper story: how a detective tracked the criminal from crime scene to arrest; how a hopeless case turned around on the smallest condemning detail; and how insight, experience, and courage stopped some of the country's fiercest criminals. With clear-ringing authenticity, Peter Micheels captures the action of the street, the politics of the precinct, and the drama of the courtroom.
