In this “inspiring inside tour of the human toll, and the satisfactions of becoming a cop” (The New York Times), Irish immigrant and retired NYPD homicide detective Luke Waters takes us inside the New York City police department and offers a glimpse at the grit, the glory, and the sometimes darker side of the police force. Growing up in the rough outskirts of northern Dublin at a time when joining the guards, the army, or the civil service was the height of most parents’ ambitions for their children, Luke Waters knew he was destined for a career in some sort of law enforcement. Dreaming of becoming a police officer, Waters immigrated to the United States in search of better employment opportunities and joined the NYPD. Despite a successful career with one of the most formidable and revered police forces in the world, Waters’s reality as a cop in New York was a far cry from his fantasy of serving and protecting his community. Over the course of a career spanning more than twenty years—from rookie to lead investigator, during which time he saw New York transform from the crack epidemic of the nineties to the low crime stats of today—Waters discovered that both sides of the law were entrenched in crooked culture. Balanced with wit and humor, NYPD Green features colorful characters Waters has met along the way as well as a “surprisingly frank” (Kirkus Reviews) and critical look at the darker side of police work. A multifaceted and engaging narrative about the immigrant experience in America, Waters’s story is also one of personal growth, success, and disillusionment—a rollicking journey through the day-to-day in the New York Police Department.

New York has always inspired larger-than-life tales and great writing—but on the topic of cops and crime it provides more raw material than almost anywhere else. A long history of classic films, television hits, and of course, books, have turned the New York City Police Department into a symbol for the dark drama of urban police work. And the rich and colorful vein of literature which has grown up around this culture makes NYPD not only a gripping read but a literary tour de force. Adrenaline Books takes you inside this gritty, tough life of being a cop in New York City. In addition to works by best-selling authors such as Peter Maas and Tom Wolfe, the book will include selections that offer a broad and deep look at the department's many faces: Carsten Stroud tells what it's like to track down a killer; Richard Rosenthal offers a sense of the pressures and risks of going undercover; and Bill McCarthy and Mike Mallowe offer a guided tour of the city's dregs and the pressures of working with its hardest cases. Philip Gourevitch's account of a cop's dedicated efforts to resurrect a cold case; Marcus Laffey's already near-classic articles on life as a patrolman; and Peter Hellman's best-seller Chief, written with an NYPD chief of detectives help round out this fascinating view of the NYPD and the forces that have made it such a compelling subject for so many good writers. " ... Try Adrenaline Books.... In three years, this 20-volume anthology series has earned a cult following."—ESPN the Magazine

Circle of Six is the true story of what is perhaps the most notorious case in the history of the New York Police Department. It details Randy Jurgensen’s determined effort to bring to justice the murderer of Patrolman Phillip Cardillo, who was shot and killed inside Harlem’s Mosque #7 in 1972, in the midst of an all-out assault on the NYPD from the Black Liberation Army. The New York of this era was a place not unlike the Wild West, in which cops and criminals shot it out on a daily basis. Despite the mayhem on the streets and the Machiavellian corridors of Mayor Lindsay’s City Hall, Detective Jurgensen single-handedly took on the Black Liberation Army, the Nation of Islam, NYPD brass, and City Hall, capturing Cardillo’s killer, Lewis 17X Dupree. He broke the case with an unlikely accomplice, Foster 2X Thomas, a member of the Nation of Islam who became Jurgensen’s witness. The relationship they formed during the time before trial gave each of the two men a greater perspective of the two sides in the street war and changed them forever. In the end, Jurgensen had to settle for a conviction on other charges, and Dupree served a number of years. The murder case is still officially unsolved. In 2006 the NYPD re-opened the case, and it is once again an active investigation with full media attention. The book has received acclaim from current New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, as well as former Commissioner William Bratton.

NYPD Red chases a ruthless murderer with an uncontrollable lust for money--and blood. It's another glamorous night in the heart of Manhattan: at a glitzy movie premiere, a gorgeous starlet, dressed to the nines and dripping in millions of dollars' worth of jewelry on loan, makes her way past a horde of fans and paparazzi. But then there's a sudden loud noise, an even louder scream, and a vicious crime with millions of witnesses and no suspect--and now NYPD Red has a new case on its hands. NYPD Red: the elite task force assigned to protect the rich, famous, and connected in the city where crime never sleeps. Detective Zach Jordan and his partner, Kylie MacDonald--a former girlfriend from the police academy who he hasn't quite gotten over--are the best that Red has to offer, brilliant and tireless investigators who will stop at nothing to crack a case, even if it means putting their own complicated lives on the back burner. From celebrity penthouses to the depths of Manhattan's criminal underworld, Zach and Kylie are soon in hot pursuit of a cold-blooded killer with everything to lose, and millions to gain if he can just shake the detectives on his trail. With the city on edge, the mayor out of patience, and the flames of their personal relationship threatening to reignite and ruin everything, Zach and Kylie are facing down their worst fears--and their worst enemy yet.

"A Cop's Tale transports readers back in time to some of New York City's most violent and corrupt years, the 1960s through the early 1980s. The guide for this descent into the Big Apple's most hellish days is Jim O'Neil, a highly-decorated detective. His career spanned the NYPD's transformation from a corrupt, inefficient force floundering in a city full of murder and mayhem to one of the cleanest, most efficient police departments in existence. O'Neil - whether describing the thrill of putting Harlem drug lord Leroy "Nicky" Barnes out of business, his key role helping the DEA end Frank Lucas's grip on the Harlem drug trade, breaking the Black Liberation Army case, or being first detective on the scene of the "Dog Day Afternoon" bank robbery - delivers a rare look into the bare-bones brand of law enforcement that has passed into history." --Book Jacket.

Steve Osborne has seen a thing or two in his twenty years in the New York Police Department (NYPD) -- some harmless things, some definitely not. In "Stakeout," Steve and his partner mistake a Manhattan dentist for an armed robbery suspect and reduce the man down to a puddle of snot and tears when questioning him. In "Mug Shot," the mother of a suspected criminal makes a strange request and provides a sobering reminder of the humanity at stake in his profession. And in "Home," the image of his family provides the adrenaline he needs to fight for his life when assaulted by two armed and violent crackheads. From his days as a rookie cop to the time spent patrolling in the Anti-Crime Unit -- and his visceral, harrowing recollections of working during 9/11 -- Steve Osborne's stories capture both the absurdity of police work and the bravery of those who do it. His stories will speak to those nostalgic for the New York City of the 1980s and '90s, a bygone era of when the city was a crazier, more dangerous (and possibly more interesting) place.

Nineteenth-century New York City was one of the most magnificent cities in the world, but also one of the most deadly. Without any real law enforcement for almost 200 years, the city was a lawless place where the crime rate was triple what it is today and the murder rate was five or six times as high. The staggering amount of crime threatened to topple a city that was experiencing meteoric growth and striving to become one of the most spectacular in America. For the first time, award-winning historian Bruce Chadwick examines how rampant violence led to the founding of the first professional police force in New York City. Chadwick brings readers into the bloody and violent city, where race relations and an influx of immigrants boiled over into riots, street gangs roved through town with abandon, and thousands of bars, prostitutes, and gambling emporiums clogged the streets. The drive to establish law and order and protect the city involved some of New York’s biggest personalities, including mayor Fernando Wood, police chief Fred Tallmadge, and journalist Walt Whitman. Law and Disorder is a must read for fans of New York history and those interested in how the first police force, untrained and untested, battled to maintain law and order.

The gritty sidewalks, crumbling tenements, and trash-strewn alleyways of the Bronx have become dumping grounds for the bullet-riddled bodies of known drug dealers. Behind the carnage, one vicious drug gang is empire building. Led by a complete sociopath, they are cornering the crack-cocaine market. The madman's lust for fortune and power expands as he produces and directs the ingenious kidnappings of competitors for huge ransoms and, aided by tentacles into the NYPD, is riding free. Detective John McGuire is catching all these cases, but is he being smothered by them? World-weary and on the verge of drowning in Johnny Barleycorn, the once superstar of the detective bureau now finds himself the target of an Internal-Affairs witch hunt. McGuire must throw off his baggage, re-focus, and find the redemption he so needs within The Job that is his whole life. He must go to war on two fronts against two raging monsters. One that comes in a bottle, and one that is painting the sidewalks of the Bronx red with blood.
