“One of the most spectacular cases of police corruption in the city.”

—New York Times

Friends of the Family is a look deep inside the most notorious case to rock the NYPD: The story of Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa, the two police detectives who moonlighted as mob hit men. As told by Tommy Dades and Michael Vecchione—the cop and District Attorney investigator who solved New York’s coldest case—along with co-writer David Fisher, Friends of the Family is shocking true crime in the tradition of Nicolas Pileggi’s Wiseguys and Underboss by Peter Mass—a chilling, in-depth examination of what the New York Daily News calls “the worst betrayal of the badge in the NYPD’s history.”

Good, not great

A wild tale of police corruption, the story is so sordid that, at times, you can get lost.

Crazy stuff

It is pretty hard to believe what these two guys did. If you enjoy mafia books and an inside like at organized crime, then this book wont do you wrong. The twist of the cops being so involved in all of it is really interesting.

My only reason for lowering the rating one star is that it was a little hard to follow at times. There were so many names (some being very similar) it was difficult to keep track of people at times. The iPad really came in useful at these times though, because you can quickly search for the names and figure out who they are again.

All in all, a good read if you are into the mafia stuff.
