Already a legend for successfully posing as a hit man and arms smuggler, Armanti transformed himself into Vinnie Blue Eyes Penisi-a veteran hood with an icy stare. Yet, once under cover, Armanti found that the wise guys he was chasing had access to classified police information. Stakes accelerated when the informant was revealed to be the son of the commander of NYPDs Internal Affairs Bureau.

Again and again, IABs detectives compromised Armanti to protect the powerful mans son, but even the police commissioner ignored the situation. Like the fireman who took an oath to serve, Armanti stayed on the job, even when it was clear his life was in danger.David Kocieniewski, former New York Times police bureau chief, reveals every moment of Armantis effort to break through the wall enforced by the cops top brass.

Here, with all its compromises, is the city of New York. Here, in all his humanity, is an unforgettable hero, battling for his honor and survival. Here is a remarkable story that ranks with the great police classics.
