Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

$18.95. law enforcement This book concerns police in one of the toughest ghettos in New York City who became thoroughly corrupt, stealing, dealing drugs, and extorting. Reporter McAlary follows the careers of Henry Winter and Tony Magno, who started out as good cops, and slowly became bad in a precinct governed by no rules and known as a dumping grown for cops who had "messed up." Once there, officers quickly became part of a gang protected by the Internal Affairs Department and their union. Eventually, Winter and Magno were caught and gathered evidence against fellow cops rather than go to jail. This scary book shows how easily good men can be corrupted. Well-crafted, fast paced, and thorough, it provides new understanding of an old problem.Sandra K. Lindheimer, Middlesex Law Lib., Cambridge, Mass.
