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!

Yet another era fades into the past. The author has written an excellent book covering "the way it was" in Indianapolis specificly to the relationship between The Indianapolis Star,the Indianapolice Department, and the political culture of those times.

Dick Cady does history a favor by writing this book which should stand for many years to come. This is not to say young readers should come away thinking these are good examples of those times as there are many other instances which reflect the best of our City and not just the underbelly of human behavior.

His discription of the STAR newsroom and the actors within is outstanding. They were really in a class by themselves. A few survive today despite their past obligations and the suffering of meeting their deadlines.

I rather enjoyed the begining of his book as it reflected the thoughts of a young reporter and his quest to do more with his circumstances.

Good work Mr. Cady.

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.
