Anyone in Indy during the time period Dick Cady covers (roughly the three decades from 1960 to 1990) needs to read this book. All the weird quirks of Indianapolis politics are here, including those with continuing "legs" such as the intertwined corruption of the county prosecutor's office and the police department.

Cady doesn't hesitate to name names, and you'll recognize familiar faces -- but this time you'll get the details so you can attach the deed to the miscreant. Many of these folks are still around, making mischief (and enriching themselves at taxpayer expense).

Unfortunately, Cady is no longer an investigative reporter, and The Indianapolis Star has been sold to that bottom-feeder of a news organization called Gannett. Today's corrupt politicians and other public officials are free to ply their trade with no one to point out their misdeeds.

The only thing missing from this tome? An index!

I think Cady should write more stories about the hoodlums named in the book. Some true crime documentaries....
I read this book in one sitting. Could not put it down.

Cady has produced a provacative volume that will tell the important "other side" of many famous Indianapolis stories. His recording of these events and back-stories is of incredible importance and will continue to grow in value over the years. The tone, however, at times is hard to wade through. Cady is clearly bitter at times - seemingly not able to step back much and analyze the painful and slow degeneration of modern American newspapers over the course of his career. At times he captures this well - but then diverts off into attacks on former editors or politicos who he thinks screwed with him along the way. He gets his revenge - and in a few places takes unfair and ugly shots at people living and dead. There were passages in the book that caused me to wonder - how did this get by a lawyer? Regardless, Cady occupies an important place in Indianapolis history at the end of the 20th century. He and his colleagues provided a valuable insight into this period - and for that, buy this book, and eat it up. It's worth the time and engages from front to back.
