In this captivating work, Richard Stanley Cagan exposes the saga of New York City narcotics detective Michael Palermo and his ties to the world of organized crime. Kevin Stillwell gives a tremendous performance, intoning with a grit and vigor that serves to enhance these scenes of NYPD corruption and the intrigue of underground crime families. He is especially adept at portraying the various characters that appear throughout, making each one distinct and memorable. Like classic New York film noir such as The French Connection, Mafia Cop places the listener in the middle of all the heart-stopping action.
Detective Michael Palermo built his career on his unique ability to inhabit two worlds at once: the world of law enforcement and the underworld of New York’s crime family organizations. Palermo participated in over 2,000 arrests while maintaining close relationships with the kingpins of organized crime - ties that allowed him to stay one step ahead of the rest of the New York City Police Department.
This true crime drama takes you inside the police force at its most corrupt and into the dark and dirty world of dons, consiglieres, underbosses, button men, soldiers, and cowboys.

Definitely kept my attention. The narrator is so good and consistent, that it's actually like listening to various characters interacting. Good story too.
"not the best."
narrative was dull did not grip me like others of the same type. would not go for it.
Story is light on facts such as saying Nicky Barnes was murdered also not that much depth of research into it
