This novel is an epic work of nonfiction about what it means to protect, to serve, and to defend among the ranks of New York's finest, by the Harvard educated NYPD officer who wrote the "Cop Diary" columns in the New Yorker, Edward Conlon.
Conlon is 4th generation NYPD and the story he tells is impossibly rich; it presents an anecdotal history of New York through its police force, and vividly depicts the teeming street life of the city in all its horror and splendor. It is a story about fathers and sons, old ghosts, undying legacies, and partners who become brothers. The book opens with Conlon's first days on patrol, and continues through his families legacy, polarizing racial bias, drug trade battles, the events of 9/11, and beyond. In this book the author captures the ironies and rhythms of the city along with the history and legacy of New York's finest.
