Caunitz sets a new standard for police procedurals with a novel that probes the treacherous chains of command on both sides of the law, from the drug-strangled streets of New York's Washington Heights to One Police Plaza. A solid, searing novel of crime and corruption, of lives saved and lost on both sides of today's front lines, Chains of Command crackles with the gritty, authentic prose only a former NYPD detective could write.
"Worse Book I've Ever Heard!"
Detective Lieutenant, Matt Stuart, third generation New York cop, is precinct head in Pigtown, an old wiseguy neighborhood where the name remains but the pig farms are gone in a forgotten section of Brooklyn. Which is where Beansy Rutolo is found inside a refrigerator with his brains blown out.
