NYPD

Stories of Survival from the World's Toughest Beat

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.
