"Undisclosed Files of the Police has something for every crime aficionado, from Mafia buffs to those who are captivated by headline grabbing trials." (Anthony M. DeStefano, Newsday)
"An extensive buffet of New York City's real crime history, served up in spicy bite-sized portions." (Raymond W. Kelly, former NYC police commissioner)
"New York characters galore, both good guys and gangsters, leap from the pages of Undisclosed Files of the Police." (Sam Roberts, The New York Times )
Bad editing at the beginning - heard the author clear his throat at the end of the introduction. Reader was excellent. Book was a bit thin on the research and obviously focused on lionizing the NYPD, but entertaining on the whole.
