Manhattan’s 19th precinct includes more than three dozen foreign consulates and the homes of some of the city’s richest and most powerful citizens, including Gracie Mansion—yet even these wealthy and sophisticated environs aren’t immune to bloodshed, brutality, and various dark dealings. In this book, a police reporter and Edgar Award-winning crime writer describes the day-to-day life of the law enforcement officers who patrol this Upper East Side neighborhood—and know the truth about what goes on behind the facades.

“Fast-paced and dramatic . . . an effort that the famous chronicler of police life Joseph Wambaugh might envy.” —Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Moving . . . revealing . . . excellent.” —Newsday
