Overview

“One of the most spectacular cases of police corruption in the city.”

New York Times

 

Friends of the Family is a look deep inside the most notorious case to rock the NYPD: The story of Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa, the two police detectives who moonlighted as mob hit men. As told by Tommy Dades and Michael Vecchione—the cop and District Attorney investigator who solved New York’s coldest case—along with co-writer David Fisher, Friends of the Family is shocking true crime in the tradition of Nicolas Pileggi’s Wiseguys and Underboss by Peter Mass—a chilling, in-depth examination of what the New York Daily News calls “the worst betrayal of the badge in the NYPD’s history.”

For a Mafia junkie like myself this was a good read. I had followed this saga in the papers back when it happened and this book fills in any blanks that the coverage then had for me. The writing is pretty straight forward, I don't feel that the author had an ax to grind. A good read.
