Captain Butterfly : a novel by Robert Leuci( Book )

In the most vicious precinct in Brooklyn, a female detective wages war on corruption. In the New York Police Department, Monty Adams is the prince of pain. An Old Testament officer, he believes that God is wrathful, and that the police are the Lord’s favorite weapon. The toughest cop in South Brooklyn, Adams isn’t above bending the laws to suit his own personal sense of justice. So when his partner’s nephew is snatched off the streets of Red Hook and molested, Monty doesn’t bother making an arrest. On a snowy night in the dead of winter, he kicks the man’s door down—and takes vengeance himself. That’s the way things are in the Brooklyn South Command Office, and it’s up to Marjorie Butera to make a change. A crusading female cop in a department that prizes brutal secrecy over the truth, she sets her sights on the worst the borough has to offer: the men, like Adams, who never hesitate to take the law into their own hands

In the gritty seventies, a young cop digs up dirt on the New York Police Department. Detective Victoria has never been shy about robbing heroin addicts. He loves the looks on their faces when he kicks down their doors and finds them with needles hanging out of their arms, their highs gone in an instant. After seventeen years on the force, Victoria has no delusions about being an honest cop. And that makes him a perfect bagman for Tommy Doyle. Doyle is the New York Police Department’s chief of detectives, the top dog in a very dirty bunch. To young Bobby Porterfield—who’s deeply in love with Doyle’s daughter, Cathy—the old man is a legend. But as Porterfield is drawn deeper into the dark side of the department, he finds that justice is never black and white. And when Doyle’s top men begin to die, Porterfield fears he may be next

All the centurions : a New York City cop remembers his years on the street, 1961-1981 by Robert Leuci( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bestselling book and acclaimed film Prince of the City told only part of Robert Leuci's story. In All the Centurions, he shares the full account of his years as a narcotics detective with the New York Police Department -- a tale of daring adventure, shattered illusions, and finally, astonishing spiritual growth. Leuci reminisces about cops both celebrated and notorious, like Frank Serpico, Sonny Grosso, and Frank King from the French Connection case. Also here are politicians, Mafia figures, corrupt defense lawyers, and district attorneys, including a young Rudolph Giuliani. Leuci reveals the dark side of the criminal justice system: the bitterness, greed, cruelty, and ambition that eventually overflowed into the streets, precinct houses, and courtrooms of the city. As vivid and entertaining as the best crime novels, All the Centurions is the story of a man descending into a hell of his own making who ultimately finds his way out through truth and justice
