In "City for Sale," two of the country's most respencted investigatine journalisrts recount the incredible story of the descent of the Koch administration into criminality. In their compelling account of payoffs and threats, of secret deals made by the overlords of the all-powerful clubhouses, Newfield and Barrett expose the behind-the-scenes story of the true workings of municipal power in America today.

Despite leaving no bribe unpaid, if anything CITY FOR SALE came out too soon, publishing during Koch's third term as New York City mayor. I don't know if a later paperback edition may include the missing wrap-up, but Koch's failure to even win the Democratic nomination for what would have been his fourth term would make for a more fitting finish.
How did H.B.O. overlook CITY FOR SALE?
I notice the CITY FOR SALE book cover image on this web site depicts a photo change. The original CITY FOR SALE cover has a picture of fallen idol Bess Myerson directly above the authors' names but the version here replaces Myerson with Rudy Giuliani. Speaking of photography, CITY FOR SALE's pictures section includes a dandy candid shot of journalist Jimmy Breslin.
"Today's reformer is tomorrow's hack," said Brooklyn boss Meade Esposito. Read CITY FOR SALE: ED KOCH AND THE BETRAYAL OF NEW YORK.
