      What an incredibly good book.

      Though somewhat outdated this book tells an interesting & exciting story for anyone interested in the NYPD. And like any good biography (of the NYPD), the authors give the reader a peak into the times & history of each era.

      This is another book I'm reading for research. I'm looking for information about the early NYPD, and by someone who isn't sugar-coating it. I'm writing a book about a period in 19th century NYC and I already know in the early NYPD days it was often hard to tell the cops from the criminals.

      Most of this book focused on the very early history of the department, only the last few chapters touch on the more recent past.
