View All Available Formats & Editions


Two decorated NYPD detectives with access to the department's most sensitive information, Louie Eppolito and Steve Caracappa sold their badges to the Mafia—and became murderers for the mob.

The most dangerous corrupt cops in American history, they left behind a pile of bodies when they retired in the early 1990s. For more than a decade it looked as if they were going to get away with it—until Detective Tommy Dades and Brooklyn Assistant DA Mike Vecchione turned a seemingly dead-end investigation into one of New York City's greatest law-and-order stories.

For the first time, the complete and shocking truth can be told of the historic case that rocked the world of law enforcement.
